Growing up I did not know that this kind of closeness could exists outside of family bonds.
I did not know how deeply I could be seen and held. Nor how it's feels like to be an essential part of the wellbeing of a whole, or the delight that comes with seeing friends shine as they bring their gifts.
My culture forgot what is of real value. It has separated us from each other, our own bodies, our emotional landscape and our lands.
We are remembering.
