May this new year bring us all sweetness, happiness, and a more peaceful and understanding world. Let us all learn to love ourselves and each other, give hope, fight for the rights of all people, and cherish every moment of our lives. 

The L Word is my favorite show of all time. Ilene Chaiken sparked a phenomenal feat when she created this show - she made it possible for individuals, including myself, to finally find the courage, the bravery, and the pride to be who we are. She gave voice to so many issues that are SO RELEVANT today, and personally gave me hope that this world will indeed get better. 

Everything about the show is amazing to me - the cinematography, the score, and most of all, the CHARACTERS. Every character in this show has a story and a personality that is delved into deeply and subtly, with both humor and emotion that resonates so much with me.

The cast is truly magnificent and the real standout feature of the show. All the cast members, in my opinion, put their hearts and souls into their characters, and really let them shine in every episode of the show. 

This is a HUGE shout out from me to Ilene Chaiken and the cast of The L Word-  I love you so much and am so profoundly grateful for discovering your show! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! I love you!

Moment

Let him wish his life

For the sorrows of a stone

Never knowing the pain of ice 

As its crystals slowly grow

Needles pressing in on the heart

To live forever

And never feel a thing

To wait a million lifetimes

Only to erode and become sand

Wish not for the stone

But for the fire

Last only moments

But change everything

Oh to be lightning

To exist for less than a moment

Yet in that moment

To expose the world to every open eye

Oh to be thunder

To clap and ring

To rumble into memories

Minds and spines

To chill the soul and shake the very ground

Pounding even the sand

Into smaller pieces

Or the mountain

Brooding, extinct

Yet gathering for one fatal moment

The power to blow the top clean off the world

Oh to last the blink of an eye and leave nothing

But nothing unmoved behind you
