Today I am slowly waking up (with the help of my always excellent coffee).

Today, I am mourning two people I have never met, because they were important to people I know. One of whom, I've never met.

Today I am savoring myself, letting myself be filled with happiness and calmness just because. Because I was called "inspiring," because I had a good parent teacher conference yesterday, because I have a chance to make a difference in this world.

Today I am booking a hotel room so we can attend a funeral on Sunday.

Today I am free.

(And celebrating my freedom by seeing a movie about a man committed to freedom. And going to breakfast with my soulmate.)
