Things I was not made for:
Wearing high heels to work.
Convincing men in suits that I am "committed."
Things I was made for:
Seeing the beauty in small things.
Encouraging other people to commit themselves to what makes their hearts sing.
Tonight I felt alive in my kitchen.
Electric skillet cooking.
Cooking the radishes.
Half-dead lilacs, pieces of shells from the beach, passport, great aunt.
