A window facing the sunrise. Daffodils (twenty-nine of them from my lover, friend, partner) on my kitchen table in this morning’s light. Last night, it was burgers and cards and strawberry cake, texts and messages and green smoothies. Gifts I can’t begin to express my gratitude for. A duet over the phone from dear friends in Canada, ending on high, “to yoooooouuuu” (delightfully out of tune, you guys). Most importantly, my family, and love and affirmation that I’ve got it made and my final twenty-something year will be the best yet. Cheers to spring and another year round our blessed sun.
