I can't complain. I have a place to live, a job, friends, food. I struggle to make it work with a man I love and have loved. This is my life--I never knew if any of this would happen to me, I never expected any of it to happen to me.

We spent a night in the pouring rain in the east village and I, inebriated as I was, twirled around and said don't rain on my parade! I was with my lover and best friend, and I had an umbrella and rain boots--what more did I need right then?

I am lucky to be here. Cant forget it.
