i think it’s okay to leave little parts of yourself in places that bring you back to life, spark your soul, warm your body, and give you a safe place to face the darkness. in this case, a little part of me is in the home in the woods my grandparents built before i was born, before i was even a thought. ive never been to a place that fills my soul up like this place, and i know so much of that is based on the love i have always experienced and felt there. and even in their physical absence now, i can still feel their all encompassing warmth every time we open the door, every time we laugh, cry, eat, or look out at the stars. my dearest Bittersweet, you are the culmination of dreams, love, and what it means to live fully and compassionately. to live for something bigger than yourself and to actually see that no dream is too big to cultivate. i am forever grateful for all the lessons you continue to teach me.
