For the most heart breaking phone call of my life; my baby sister on the other end. Spurting out “I love you’s” through sobs. For telling each other it’s gonna be alright- especially when you don’t believe what you’re saying at all. For looking at the mountains like it’s gonna be the last thing your eyes ever see. For hearing children crying because they think they’re about to die. For crying the whole drive home even though we’re safe For crying hours later even though we’re still safe For feeling it in my bones; life and death. For getting to shower in hot clean water again For waking up in a lover’s arms For making that love For hugging my people For farmers markets and dancing with the ninety year old woman in her walker For slacklines And my favorite beaches For my best friends For my yoga practice and my teaching For my island; for my home For gratitude For impermanence For presence For love For hope What do the days after a false nuclear threat look like? This. Feeling alive and full and grateful. Please live life like you mean it. I can’t tell you how much it means when your time is running out.
