I am grateful for my family, and for the other people in my life who love me and want me in their lives. They are the rare cocoon and soft place to land in the world; the first place to share joy and give love and the one place you will never be turned away. I raise a glass today to my real and adopted families for being the still horizon in my whirlwind life, and the trampoline when the whirlwind stopped spinning and I dropped out of the sky. Home is not a place; it is where you are welcome with open arms and open hearts. Cheers.
