It was a very moving birthday trip for me, as good and as hard as it gets. Not only for the things we saw and where we went, but for the things that broke inside—I mean that in a good way, now, so don’t get crazy on me! Just tremendous, all in all. My body feels lighter and stronger, too. The boy’s a piece o’ work but has some awesome allies. Here’s one of them I met this morning. The other I just kissed goodnight.
