Sometimes expectations change rapidly, and perspectives are re-aligned.
In this past year I have had to relinquish what I had deemed the most vital friendships, as they became the most volatile.
Recently, I met a felicitous young man. He left gifts in my inbox with delightful and extraordinary content. And in one small evening he strung fairy lights across the rooftop, made concentric circles in clear oriental ambrosia ring around me, and opened up the world I knew to show beauty which had always seemed elusive.
Then he did something beautiful and delicate, something perfect that a girl had dreamed of and never thought would be realised.
He taught me how to find grace in cutting strings, and staying true to intrinsic intentions.
A girl could not wish for anything more.
But she does.
Thank you, my dear.
