I was in Maine last week visiting family and they have the coolest thing: a hummer ring! It’s a flower that holds sugar water and you wear it, hold super still, and the hummingbirds will come eat out of it like it was a normal feeder. It was so cool! (Ignore the silly looking hat; it was supposed to hide my face and make me look more flower-like. #fail 😹) (Also, the part that didn’t get filmed was when the hummingbird initially flew up, he went to my toes first—which are currently the same color as the flower ring—so that’s the part at the end. 😊)

All recharged from an arvo of puppy time & binge-watching @queereye. .
So, as you all know from my instastories this week, it horrified me how falling sick broke down my normal zen/ Teflon state. There I am, happily typing away on my keyboard listening to Guy Sebastian's 'Choir' thinking: "Wow! Love this upbeat song! It's like a graduation song. You're done with uni, you're about to enter the workforce & meet this whole new crew of people etc". Then on my 3rd go listening to it, I suddenly actually listen to the lyrics & realise he's singing about someone who died & who struggled with self-worth & people putting out his fire, who never got to sing the melody; who thought he was replaceable & alone. Without realising, I had teared up, bloodshot eyes... half an hour before I was to meet one of my intellectual heroes: Frank Pasquale. It was a major #fail moment. (I did end up getting it together and had a wonderful time).
On reflection, I realised the song cracked open that residual sadness I'd kept locked away since watching that devastating @poseonfx episode "Never knew love like this before". I think "Pose" is the best tv series to come out of 2018. This episode from season 2 was so sad yet gorgeous. (Spoiler alert) Candy gets murdered & the episode proceeds to narrate this fiction of how each character gets closure in a post-death conversation with her. I would hazard a guess here that a few of you in my extended #LGBT family have lost people young & we don't often get closure. So what remains is this imprint of pain & loss that sits in your way until you accept that some things will always haunt you & you pack it away on a shelf at the back of your head, allowing it to dislodge in quieter moments. We all have conversations that we wished we knew the endings to.. & watching this series of closures was cathartic. It transformed what was a funeral episode into one of the most beautiful tv moments. That last lip sync reduced me to ugly crying- Nic actually turned to me & said, "I'm so embarrassed for you I need to leave the room". 🤦♂️😭
Today I am grateful for where I am in life. Sometimes we have to be still look around breath and be grateful. Although you may have aspirations that you desire to reach its importance to assess where you are. It’s important to know that all those obstacles you encountered you overcame.
It’s important to take a second to be proud.
