since 1970 (an open letter to my friends)

since 1970

Dearest and beloved, it’s been a matter of busied hours and circumstance for which I have not been able to communicate as succinct as I would have preferred, but inevitable destiny abounds as this transmission reaches you now. Know this. Your existence coupled with your presence means a lot to me. Your availability and support humble me. You mean more than you can know and I’m thankful you are here.

I am elated and reflective right now on this first of June 1. Where I started and where I am today are on almost opposite sides of the spectrum. My life has witnessed many failures that have ultimately lead to many successes. I dwell on how life means so much to me now wherein once upon a time, I was far from impressed with its offerings. Looking back gives me greater reason to move forward with purpose. And again you make the difference.

Since 1970, I have shared words and love and oxygen with you. Thank you for your wishes, kinds words, grace and forgiveness. I love you, friends, family, foes and foreign. I love you madly.

Here’s to more hours, days and years.
