It was an absolute joy to sit and speak with him again. Fifteen years later and he’s still the same hilarious, kind-hearted, inspiring man. Our encounter reminded me of the importance of handwritten journals and having something tangible to pass down to future generations. I started this blog with that exact focus but the online world feels so impersonal these days and I’m not writing with the passion I once had.
I am beyond thankful for this writing space and all the lovely people I've met because of it. It taught me to be more open and kept me sane when I couldn't make sense of what I was feeling. But my favorite part of all was the feedback. So many people reached out to me with gratitude about how certain posts inspired them to give, love, grow. I will never forget that.
