entry arrow12:01 AM | How We Walk On

All rites of passage, Ino, are sad -- poignant is the right word -- because they are, in fact, a little death, a goodbye to a part of you that must be transformed, and cannot continue in the new journey ahead. It's the life after death, the blossoming after the rotting, the butterfly after the cold coffin of the cocoon. Cherish that sad smile, that soft, fearful uncertainty in the hollows of your stomach. They tell you that inspite of everything, you can still go on.

Today, too, is my Independence Day.
