It should be from the time I lost my first child that November became my least favorite month… I’ve tried various ways to escape the sudden waves of sadness, but my body always stays honest, and all sorts of physical discomforts start to pop up during this time.
Ahboga had told me about this cool place called SAFE in Austin. It’s a truly heartwarming story of a family with big, big hearts who saves abandoned and often disabled animals, and then when they are ready, pairs them with humans often with special needs themselves. What ends up happening is pure magic, healing in the way that only unconditional love can.
It’s just hair, isn’t it? So it was surprising that so many thoughts and emotions played out before, during, and after I got my once-in-a-lifetime haircut.
What is our relationship to hair? Is it a vehicle for self-expression? Is it power? Is it beauty? Is it comfort? Is it fashion?
There are no selfless good deeds, I believe. Everything happens for a reason, and every action is done with a purpose.
Any small giving can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
