Private places to cry.


Safe spaces.


Andrew, Mason, and my parents.

This morning between my math exam and work I had an excellent phone conversation with my mother.


Tonight I saw a man exercising his dog by driving loops in a parking lot with his smart car, his dog running happily behind.


She asked if I was okay and I said, “Yeah, I’m fine.” So she asked again.

I went down to the folks’ house today to have a big family dinner with my parents, grandpa, aunt, sister, brother-in-law, and new nephew. It was lovely to have everyone sit around one big table and talk about life.


Being able to drive down to visit the family was a blessing unto itself. The transmission went out on my car awhile ago, so my father has been very graciously letting me borrow his. Reliable transportation is amazing.
