There are (Christmas) lights at the end of this tunnel

And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home


I am traveling, traveling, traveling, traveling

"All I really, really, want is our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you too."

It took me almost a decade since I first heard this song before I finally understood the love you were singing about. And now that I have, it feels like there is nothing in the world I cannot overcome. A love that seeks to keep on giving is a love that will never run out. Love from family, from friends, from a person who makes you feel safe — when you have that in your life, what is there to fear?

This month is about overcoming a lot of things. And accepting that the journey that got me here is a reward in itself. Whatever happens, there is light waiting for me on the other side.

Happy birthday, Joni Mitchell — songwriter, artist, lover, Scorpio.
