Now I love to go places. I love the feeling I get when I am in an unfamiliar town and there are people simply everywhere living their own small-universe lives. It's so freeing to let my own problems melt into the bigness of humanity. And so inspiring to see the endless possibilities of life - where to live, where to work, what to drive. And so powerful to understand - I guess - how little I matter.
I never feel more important than when I stand aware, smack dab in the middle of my insignificance. I think that's the first step to being able to matter at all.
(P.S. The cancer checkup went well too. I'm still free of it!)
