December 16 - Friendship
How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?
An acquaintance, then a friend, then my anam cara - my soul's friend, and now, my love. In a mere 4 sublime and lovely, languid days, she was transformed from one the the next and then I fell, hopelessly, bottomlessly, in love. Without tether, without tanks, submerged at once, into the ether of her. I leaned into her, like a ripe blooming rose, drank in her heady scent, inhaled every last aroma, and am now, like Alice before me, fallen down the rabbit hole. She was everything I never knew I always wanted. And I see the world with new eyes, feel my life with a new heart.
