Heh. The phrase “por ella”, “anatto”, “rinse” and the name “Mako” are all delicious.
I’m extra introspective because my birthday’s coming up, and every year I’m like, “Wow, good for me, right?” Because seriously who ever thought I’d make it this far?
I’m looking forward to calling my sisters and my mom and talking about it. About watching the skin of my face settle triumphantly into the shape of the muscles beneath. About the miracle of continuing stubbornly to exist. About waking up every morning under this sign:
and I wake up a winner. I go to bed a winner.
There’s always the tunnel, and there’s always the light at the end of it. I might always be in one of the tunnels, but I’m also always living in the light at the end of previous tunnels. There’s always a way through.
I will be 33 years old in three days. That is a beautiful miracle.
