from the beginning to the middle of july, i think about all thirty-one flavors of independence. i think about choices and the courage to make choices and stick with them. i think on the nature of change and how the promise of a desired outcome can sometimes be worth the ordeals and challenges of a reconstruction. i think about gatherings with friends and family because i like to remember that being independent doesn't mean having to be alone.
may your fourth of july and bastille day be fierce and sparkly.
