Yesterday was an emotional day. One of my roommates received some devastating news. I’m still bruised myself. So we all stayed inside of our safe, warm house yesterday, leaving only to get more Coke Zeros, snacks, and dinner.
Do you know what it feels like to be loved? To have people who genuinely care for you gathered around? It feels wonderful.
We ate catfish and gumbo and soft-shelled crab. We cried a bit, laughed a lot, and talked late into the night. We sat down and had a write-in together. It was so lovely. It was so healing.
Today is a new day.
I’m in New Orleans, wearing a red dress.
