I know it's a cliche to say to notice this moment, but it is all we have. Like that, life can change.
I'm not sure I've ever shared here what Katy means to me. She is a light, a gift. She loves poetry, and is a great poet. She is a good, kind, generous, sweet person with a heart bigger than her being. A friend pointed out that maybe what brought me to my grandmother's dishes and old family recipes this week is a spirit of ancestral support. I know we are all rooting for Kate. She's had great care in the hospital she was in, and I know she will have great care at Yale. For now, the moment, this moment, is it.
Thank you for connection. Thank you for support.
