Twenty Five

Twenty four was wonderful, and I have so much to be grateful for: finding the strength to break my silence; exploring, learning, discovering; learning how to paint with oils; watching spring turn to summer in Tübingen; spending a great deal of time with the one I love; laughter and joy; Italian-made ice cream; celebrating the new year in the streets of Germany; discovering Berlin; discovering New York City all over again; meeting a sweet, sweet reader and becoming fast friends; birds flying through my room; wild thunderstorms; traveling through the breathtaking mountains of Austria and the magic of Venice; and so, so, so much more.

Here I am, close to the end of college and the beginning of my life. The possibilities give me goosebumps.

Sweet Self, I am so proud of you. I love you deeply, in all your imperfection, and I so admire your silliness, your wonder, your compassion, your zest for adventure. Here's to another wonderful year!
