Today is the eight anniversary of the day my life changed forever. The day my perfect partner, Tananarive Due, promised to have and to hold me. She is the best decision I never made: from the first moment my heart opened, I knew who and what she was, and needed only to chart the most honorable and efficient course to her side. I love her as I never knew I could love another human being. I just wanted to say here, publicly, that love is not only possible, I believe it to be the natural state of existence. All else is illusion, is a dream of separation. Thank God I awakened.
