Thoughts Before Bedtime, Back and Forth

The colour pink has been reclaimed by the V-Day movement.  And I like it.

My head is pounding.  Physically and emotionally.  Thoughts don’t stop when it hits the pillow.  Many nights are sleepless.  But I make it up in other moments.  Somehow.

Eve Ensler is the role model women around the world are searching for.  I hope you have found her because she is amazing.  “Welcome to V-World.  You are now in it.”  Violence against women is not tolerated here.  And we vagina warriors do all that we can to stop it.

My husband is the most supportive person in my life.  I am proud to have his name attached to mine.  I have not taken on a new man’s identity.  I have included it with mine.  And it fits perfectly.

I will wash the day from my face.  Throw back my hair.  Bury my face in my pillow.  Curl up beneath my comforter.  Imagine him sleeping next to me.  And fall into slumber.  Where my headache no longer keeps my thoughts caged.  But where I dream freely.
