weekaversary song of the day: follow your heart, follow the flame or fall to the floor

one week ago today, my cat pepa died. and indeed, it does get a little better, aside from crying when i broke my salad bowl at work because hey, it felt like i was killing everything i loved.

losing a pet is weird. it’s weird to love a creature so much. and at the same time, i’m ok. not good. but ok. i feel like i’m teetering at the edge of a building, and one misstep can cause me to fall. at the same time, i think i’m ok because i’m ok with the fall, with any and all falls that it may take to have both feet on the ground again.

i mean, with falls you get bruises and scars, and then you have a story to tell about how you got it. all heartbreak is a small scar in the path for a well constructed love, and all falls teach you that you are alive, even if (and especially because) it hurts.

’tis the season for fall(s).
