It feels like a very ugly time to be in the world. It also feels, though, like perhaps the world has always been this ugly and some of us have just been privileged enough to only be learning about it now. In which case, on my good days, I hope something good comes out of all this knowledge, that we figure out better ways of being in the world.
On my bad days, I do not think that, so much.
In any case, the world keeps doing what it does, and I have to admit how very lucky I am. Particularly in love (ugh, sorry, gross, I know). These were my anniversary flowers from Mike. Way to go, big guy. A++
