I wish you a beautiful time ushering out 2019

my feelings about it were mixed

there were the “pinch me” parts that i couldn’t quite believe were real

and then there were the “you’ve got to be fucking kidding me” parts that I was pissed were real

but in the end, when all is said and done

I’ve done my work

I’ve shown up

I know who I am

I know what I bring

I know how to ask for help

I know how to contribute

I know that the only opinion that truly matters is mine

I know my pleasure will never hinge on the pain of another

I know that there is no one quite like me


I know there is no one quite like you

hugs, love, blessings, joy, fun, relief, ecstasy, elation – and happy new year, friend



ps for fun, try asking yourself the questions I use


Have I done my work?
Have I shown up?
