  • There has come a moment after days , weeks, months, even lifetimes of struggle when everything is clearing up, or rather after a day or two of complete exhaustion, after a person or two affirming my feelings,and in my case after three hours of deep exhausted sleep in the middle of the afternoon two days ago, sleep in which I remember nothing but that there were three women, three women I admired for their generosity, wisdom and beauty; after all that there was a moment of quiet, of peace, of certitude, of strength and when my friend asked me what, I said it felt easy. And she said that's because it is right. In the whole wide universe it is right. She said you have come to who you are supposed to be in eternity and that is why it is easy. Moving forward all it means is that Yes is Yes and No is No. And That is all.
