What Others Have

More playing around with an audio essay. Tonight is about envy. Comparison.

And going to bed feeling melancholy over the news that a family I know has lost their daughter today, a young woman in her early 30s, and that she leaves behind a husband and a 4-year-old. Another reminder that life can be brutally unfair and cruel. Tonight I kiss my children extra hard in remembrance of all the moms and dads who will never get to see their children grow up, my husband included.

I am reminded that everything I have right now is more than enough. I am lucky.

(A “real” essay on its way this week. Stay tuned.)
