Well, guys, let me tell you.

I had A Day.

This post was going to contain a bunch of tongue-in-cheek things (like about how an ancient Chinese lady tenderly stroked my thigh on the bus as she told me my dress was beautiful) and then…

You’ve heard of Anon Hate? Well, I got some Real Life Hate. (Courtesy of my mother’s soon-to-be-ex-husband.) And while I know, rationally, that the hate isn’t really about me, it still hurt like fuck being attacked out of nowhere (all under the guise of mending? things? or what the fuck ever?).

Then, because the universe was like, “Oh, shit, my bad,” I got one of the nicest random messages EVER, from a now-grown-up little girl I used to babysit, who, after 20 years, still remembers the novel I wrote then (and was, in edited format, reading to her).

But still. Emotional rollercoaster. Cried until my eyes hurt–both happy tears and sad ones. And now? Now it is most decidedly time for bed.

Tara reached over and took Willow’s hand. She’d always been tactile with the woman she loved, but she’d found herself even more so since she’d come back… come back from the dead. After over two years with no body, unable to touch anything or anyone, let alone Willow, Tara felt like she had to check often, to make sure she still could.
