September 9 – Monday – Way Backtracking

A childhood friend was giving a reading from her latest book within walking distance of my office. I was going to go, I wasn’t going to go. A friend said that I needed to do this and reminded me I could stay for five minutes and leave. So, having an out, I went and spent five minutes with this woman I was friends with in elementary school. And let me tell you, five minutes with her equaled five years of therapy. I sort of had more crap than most kids in my neighborhood. In those five minutes I was validated, recognized. She said that little girl, me, was cool. That’s not even why I went, but so glad I did.
