(*Fans of Laini Taylor, didn't you just love the Monty Python reference in Days of Blood and Starlight??)
I just dropped in because I realized something.
I haven't been sad in a long time. Really sad. Depression sad. And you do you know how that makes me feel? Like this:
I feel like there's a tendency for people to only reach out (if at all), when the path is darkest. So I wanted to stop and say, "Hey! I'm feeling good today!"
The gremlin hasn't jumped on my back in a long time, and I am grateful. Watchful. But grateful.
I think Bingley has helped a lot. It's not just that he loves me, it's that he needs me. Feeling needed is a powerful kind of magic.
So today I'm not reaching out to you for help. Instead, I'm extending my hand to you. Sending a little sunshine your way. A candle at the window. A lantern in the gathering dusk.
It's only fair if we take turns.
