I walked in a bit late and was relieved to find that the session hadn’t started yet and people were still mingling. I felt different about being there as soon as I stepped in, to think that I had spent a couple of minutes prior feeling an unwelcome and eclectic wave of emotions that now seemed so insignificant.
I scoped my surroundings and that’s when I saw them. I’d heard so much about them and to be honest I didn’t know what to expect but I loved every bit of what I encountered. You know that feeling when you meet someone so comfortable in their person-hood that they liberate you to not only reveal but to embrace your own weird, those are the best kind of people and I pray I grow more into such a person.
