The human heart was—and remains—a mystery to me. But I’m learning. I have to. —Anthony Bourdain

Life is short, week 19 of 52

Status report: I adore rain and how it makes everything lush— it also keeps me very cold.

Life is short moments for last week:

1. Diving in. Adventures, rejection, weird things. Living life means risking hurt feelings, annoyed evenings, and wasted time. But it means living. I lived all those and while there are losses, I’m glad to have had memories made.

2. Hot springs. I am a hot springs person. I can’t deny it any longer. I love the relaxing feeling, the calm of being offline. I guess it allows me to just be, and I love that with my mind having a tendency to run away from me.

3. Affection. I just realized how different my love language has changed from words of affirmation to touch has been. I can be in a room and be silent but just lean on a person, or sit next to them in a room. I have a few friends at work that just understand when I walk over for a hug and it is such a game changer in quality of life.
