Today is a special day.

02022020

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.

Of course.

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.
