Today is my niece’s 17th birthday! I have, at long last, learned to speak in a language she understands. She is so much of my sister that it use to frighten me, but I’ve seen her shake the parts of her that build rust. I’m proud of who she is and of who she is becoming!
30-something Mississippi queer. Bleeding heart with a soft spot for honesty and oversharing. Conquering corporate America and my own insecurities– one day at a time.
