Today is a special day.
It is also a day where many things have happened.
My brother, who has passed, was born this day.
This is the day I came to the States in 1986.
This is the day I first moved in to my first ever apartment back in 2013.
…and today, after a tumultuous 2019, where I got fired, broke my finger, gave up smoking, and wrote 2 books, one of those books—a memoir was released into the world.
I am a 40 year-old woman with no children.
I don’t know what it feels like to be a mother. I thought I was pregnant because I was 4 days late but no—I started bleeding today and, of course I did.
The whole thing was a sacrificial bloodletting.
I am hoping that this book does well, only because it is such a personal thing.
Such a personal personal thing.
My past has come back.
My love is strong.
Strange men are wanting to drown me.
Women want to console me.
But there is also kindness.
