Tonight a young Nepalese gas station attendant told me all about his Friday graduation from Laney and how hard he’s worked to achieve this moment. It was so sweet to celebrate a milestone accomplishment with a stranger. I also caught the sunset from my favorite Oakland perch and it occurred to me that maybe I’m totally ok. I’ve always quietly wondered if I was actually ok but maybe I really have been this whole time, and being unsure about something so fundamental has caused so much damage to my insides. What if I was a person with a lived experience of being totally ok? What would that be like?
I think I’d like to find out.
