11/11 11:11

"Look," swashbucklr said. "Look what time it is!"

I can't remember which of us said it, me or devoken. "11:11! Make a wish!"

Not just 11:11, but 11:11 on 11/11. Extra magic, exponential magic. We all closed our eyes, silently and desperately reeling off our wish lists. Health and solutions to financial difficulties and love and happiness and wisdom, for person after person...

And my first wish and my closing with, in the seconds before 11:12... "Please let everything be as wonderful as it is right now, let me be as happy as I am right now."

I am given to wild priestessy exuberance, moments of sheer breathtaking wonder and joy. I have more of these moments and hours and days than I used to. I don't know if I can take many more, lest my heart burst of it. But I want no fewer, please. I want these moments of wonder and joy, amazement and laughter and light. This is what makes my life so fantastic, despite my physical issues and the financial stuff stemming from them. The state of mind that lets my mind be blown by little found miracles. My mind is perpetually blown. My heart is perpetually full to brimming.

This is why I laugh, and this is why I dance.

My life has so much beauty. And I am so happy that I can see that.
