But everybody told me to be smart
Look at your ______ they said,
“_______, use your head.”
But instead I chose to use my heart
Now the joy of my world is in ____
It’s beautiful here, I have been warmly welcomed, but it is quite an adjustment as you can imagine.
I find myself from time to time just aching to have a good cry, cause everything is new, nothing is the same, and that is overwhelming.
But then I eat, work out and get back to work, keeping myself busy and hoping that I will meet a beautiful man will sweep me off of my feet and make this whole process easier.
Toronto is in the middle of a heatwave. Since you have left, the mist has not lifted. The visibility has been consistently bleak.
I go about my days as usual but returning to an empty boat is still a surprise, and then a let-down.
K___ came by last night and said she felt only feminine vibes in the boat and this made me sad.
I’m so sad.
Can I help?
Five years ago on this day, my life changed.

Unlike last summer, the summer days of 2015 are clustered, inexpressable, and are taking me with them.
