Today I love that Black Lives Matter and I will be marching in a walk here in my town. I love that a very industrious young lady named Jill Lyman has organized a walk in this town and she has done an absolutely amazing job from what I can see.
Today I love finding my way through life. I love checking in with my hopes and wishes and discovering that I am on track. I love that I am okay with my life and myself so far and I really love that I can see room for improvement because if I thought I was done becoming a better person, I’d clearly have lost my way. I love people who are willing to help me learn about life, especially the aspects of life that I am unable to experience for myself. I love that there are people who are open to helping me with my education. I love keeping myself awake and aware of the fact that I do not know everything about everyone’s lives. I love that I am trying to be open and honest about my life to anyone who wants to understand where I came from and how my life has worked so far. I love that being open and honest has never gotten me in trouble, that the trouble I got into was always by not thinking openly and honestly about the impacts of my words and actions. I love that I try very hard to ensure that my words and actions do not cause pain, and when they do I am willing to accept responsibility and use the experience to change and move forward.
Today I love that the trim is going in to the kitchen now and soon it will look a lot more finished and I will look a lot happier, if that is at all possible. I love the way the kitchen has turned out and I love how well it works. I love that, although we still feel like we could have used more space for the kitchen, it is so much more spacious and it is better organized than it was before. I love how easy it is for two people to work in this space now, before we would have to wait for the other one to move to get this or that and now we can go around each other or around the island and things get done.
Today I love doing all the things that I do, changing plans and making modifications to my home, writing, making radio shows, playing music, taking photographs, reading, cooking, gardening, all the things that I am able to do and enjoy. I love that I get to share these things and the stories that go with them with friends and relatives and neighbors and readers and that the lines that separate those groups are often blurred and truly unnecessary.
Today I love drinking coffee and watching the trim going up while I plan my trip down town to march with my neighbors because Black Lives Matter … to me.
