All I do nowadays is dance. Not in any coordinated manner, mind you, and certainly not in the presence of anyone else.
I’m only now starting to realize how necessary it was for me to survive that crucible last year, and how important it was for me to save myself. It hasn’t tempered the extremes, but they don’t last as long anymore.
It’s comforting to know I’ve been through this before. It wasn’t all for nothing. I’m a little wiser now, and I’m not going to make the same mistakes again.
This winter hit us heavy once more, and like it I refuse to die.
