Our beautiful bay is abuzz with Pride these days. And I’m feeling sentimental attachments to the gay citizens of humanity, but especially those who I know personally in and out of the Pilates world.
I’m grateful to live in a community that embraces everybody. I’m grateful that there is no one human being like another and as we collectively advance we learn the depth of meaning in that common observation.
I’m grateful that Pride happens once a year and that I get to bear witness in the smallest of ways with my heart bursting with love for those who are bold enough to express their love in spite of the hardship that comes from being in a minority.
I’m grateful that the people in my life, who I love and appreciate so much and who happen to be gay, are free to be who they are. Because I know that freedom makes each of us much more loving and wonderful.
Here’s to expressing our sentiments opening and freely – and to trusting that there will always be an empathetic person to receive us with open and loving arms.
PS. Aren’t libraries the best?! Ours is putting on the most amazingly entertaining series of events this summer and I am so grateful to have lots of free and fun outings for my son to enjoy with me and with his caregivers.
