This song feels appropriate to me today. This is the first such day in… maybe ever… that I’ve been in a position to celebrate whole-heartedly and in the culturally-approved fashion. (With, ah, certain allowances for changing social mores.)
Warm thoughts to everyone who is not in that position — happily, unhappily, or a little of both. Be welcome. May you find fellowship today.
(In point of fact I’m recovering from illness and don’t feel like fighting for a table, so my boyfriend and I will go celebrate this weekend some time. It is a nice change, though, to feel like I have something to celebrate.)
