Last night I called a good friend. One of those friends who understands my idiosyncracies. One of those friends who is just as complicated and multi-faceted.
I said to her, "You and I, we are not light."
I meant that we felt the weight of being, and sometimes it's heavy.
But there are times I feel light, like I'm floating. Like the time my photo was taken with Rio de Janeiro in the background. At the exact moment the shutter clicked, I thought, "Here I am, in a place I've always wanted to visit, speaking a language I didn't speak two months ago. All because of me."
Today, my friend sent me this. And it transported me.
And for a while, I floated.
