I dig my hands into the dirt and plant a garden. I sit at my keyboard and let a storyline drum through my head until it finds its way to the screen. I expose my weaknesses and fears so I can overcome obstacles that once were. I share my triumphs because I want to be lifted higher. I sit in my car and curse aloud when I’m sad and alone. I dance in the kitchen. I sing without holding a tune. I stare at the stars and make wishes. I pretend to hex people when they annoy me. Life allows us to express ourselves and I’m not afraid to do so. At least, that’s what I tell myself.
