Hashtag Twenty Eight

Three weeks ago, on June 26, enveloped in love and celebration, I turned 28. And since that time, I have tried to just be in the world, you know? 

And what I've experienced so far is gratitude so profound. 

I'm grateful for everything. All of it. I'm grateful that I could NOT but I AM.

Like, we could not exist. But we do. We could be particles in the universe or whatever. But we are human. We have souls. We have consciousness. 

What a gift! 

To feel
To think
To be
To LOVE
To TOUCH
To LAUGH
To experience AWE
To fuck, to cry, to feel anything at all
It's all such a gift

We could be bacterium. But we have souls and get all this.

We get to kiss
We get to listen
We get to feel the wind on our face
To eat avocado
To watch the moon rise and look like a slice of an orange
To miss each other
Even. EVEN
To feel self conscious
To be mad at each other
To feel less than
To feel hurt

WE GET TO FEEL THAT
THAT IS OURS
IN OUR MASSIVE UNIVERSE

We get to feel stupid pain
We get to feel slighted
And we get to feel joy
And love
And sex
We get to use our bodies
To hug
To sleep
To smell

I'm here for it.
Thank you you beautiful humans for flying through space with me another year. I love you.
