Ten years is a long time, and in some ways I feel I wasted the last year feeling so sad about a connection that was gone long ago with someone I never felt fully appreciated me. I struggle not to feel that I wasted the last 10 years of my life in that relationship, though I am grateful I did not stay for 20.

As it emerges from the depths of its cocoon, no more than you does a butterfly know whether it can fly, but it opens its wings in perfect confidence and simply takes flight.

Her identity as a Mormon housewife had to go. When she removed it, the whole structure collapsed. Choosing to undergo such a radical metamorphosis, in hindsight is astounding, but she knows however painful, it was the only choice. In destroying her life, she saved it.

I feel my hair bounce like a Breck commercial as I smile at puppies and passers-by.

The sun on the street mirrors my mood and I give thanks to the great gift of time.

I hate moving, but I'm getting rather good at it. I try on and immerse myself in different environments. Kind of an Eat, Pray, Love of various communities, gaining some new angle of perspective in each place. So far it's without Javier Bardem, though. Damn.
