    I hope sharing is at least acknowledging that we are right and righteous in these feelings. We're not to fault, and the feelings grant their own permissions.

    I look out at a sky, and the gift of November is the cold air finally cleaning to clarity. Above the horizon, figuratively and literally, there is a beauty we can pluck out and construct on our own. It is ours.

    I wish you peace and comfort.

      responses! Being at home inside yourself, and creating beauty within that home is what makes it possible, for me anyway, to stop feeling different or apart from my sibs, my parents, my friends when I realize that a certain day or afternoon or meal is something that I would rather not be part of.
      The stigma is enclosed within the concept of the Family Holiday, and for that, we can only thank the advertising industry, and all of their blather about what is right or regular.
