Something incredibly inspiring happened today. We had a lunch date with a young woman whom I have met at my writing group and whom we have also shared some great moments at Eroticon, once in London and once in Bristol. This year we couldn’t go because of mom’s illness. Today, at our lunch date she said she had a gift for me. She handed me a card and when I opened it, I could hardly believe my eyes. It was a card filled with personal messages from several people at Eroticon – people who have become our friends – who sent me love and good wishes and telling me how much they missed us being there. I was overwhelmed. Humbled. And I couldn’t stop the tears. Feeling so much kindness, so much love… it’s incredible. I can hardly wait to go to Eroticon next year and seeing all of these people again, hugging them and thanking them personally for how special they made me feel today!
This was my answer in 2016.
