So happy to see my friends happy even if most of them are hundreds of miles away. That’s when you know you’ve been blessed with friendship - when just thinking about their happiness and your memories with them can fill your heart with such joy.
Every day, I open up my laptop to a reminder of that day, that moment. My screensaver background captures the time nearly four years gone—A black and white photograph of a French man with shadowed eyes and unshaven face, feeding birds in mid-flight in front of Notre Dame in Paris. I remember watching him that day. His arm held out with the poise of a straightened back, looking as if it were naturally born to be a perch. Bird after bird would fly to his hand, sometimes in groups, and he held onto the bread just tight enough to feed them all so one bird wouldn’t carry the whole loaf away. It was art, the way he did it. He saw me and handed me a piece, and then he scoffed at me when the first bird that flew up to me knocked the entire piece to the ground. He knew how. I didn’t. It was his city. Not mine. I read his belittling look and wrinkled expression like a book. There are things I don’t know that have nothing to do with language.
Must not sleep. Must do work.

We’ll be, We’ll be home."

Creating your own happiness is happiness of the highest form. It’s been a long long time, but here I am and it’s a rich and full kind of happy and it’s because of me.
Another 8 to 8 day, and another tomorrow. When do I get to do real adult life?
