“noble Holiday”

another birthday is headed my way

January 1.

Having a gathering of my one and loved ones out for a celebration at Hillcrest Brewery. I imagine ordering a few Pearl Necklace brews and then later a pizza with a thin crusty crust, topped with goat feta cheese, basil, black olives, anchovies, artichoke hearts, garlic, spinach and drizzled olive oil.

I am grateful for the love of my man, the love of my life, the laughing man, the honest man, the sexy man, the one, oh - you know - we are coming up on 35 years together come November - “noble Holiday”

I am grateful for my southern foundation, cracked in places but filled with an astute aerie of loving people, family - forever - we share a history, a herstory to be exact, most of it herstory.

I’ve spent the past few months deciding what to do for my next… I gotta make a… shake things… dance.

My story. Stories. No 13th floor.

My years, all in a row.

What

a

time

I

am

having.

"Lest any doubt that we are glad that they were born Today

Whose having lived is held by us in noble Holiday

Without the date, like Consciousness or Immortality -"

Alabama

You reminded me tonight
of the south I grew up in -
big love and laughter -
agreeing to disagree
always
disagreeing to agree

Huge win
Huge relief
Huge dream

Big breath.
