I'm so grateful for my friends and family. For the beautiful day, and the sun shining down. For the crescent moon as it bends to the dark horizon. For the love that beats in my heart.

I'm grateful for the challenge I've been given. Grateful for the food that graces my table. For my job, my co-workers, my life. I'm grateful for this blog, and for the connections made with people I will never meet, those who celebrate me, and those who disagree with everything I stand for.

I celebrate joy. I celebrate dawn. I celebrate the power of Twilight.

Be blessed, everyone.

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands even at the height
of their arc of anger
because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
