since pride month is ending, here's a little see-you-again:
there is so much right and so much wrong with how the world responds to me, as a bisexual woman. someone says something ignorant and hurtful, and i'm sad; another embraces me with love and acceptance and i'm proud and happy again — but that's not what this is about. this is not about the world and its people. not about the labels and technicalities. not about the fight. not about acceptance.
this little writing is just about life as kavita. and how grateful i am for each little detail here. i guess how one defines love is subjective, but for me, love has always been the easiest, most organic feeling. it is very, very easy for me to fall in love. i'm almost always swimming in this feeling — with a well-written sentence, morning rain, milk mixing into coffee, a stranger singing a mac demarco song on his guitar, a vulnerable artist expressing their relationship with anxiety, a friend's golden bracelet as she looks through shelves at a bookshop, my sister's soft afternoon sleep, the coldness of my ukulele on holding it for the first time in the morning after a rainy night. i just love. a lot. all the time. and i'm grateful for that.
it's not very difficult for me to fall for someone, romantically. a kind, soft, compassionate person is not hard to find — the world is full of them! i am grateful for the blue tinted, breezy, warm hearted, healing women that i've ever come across. grateful for the rosy, nourishing, tender, loving men. grateful for the sparkling, daylight coloured, homely, open minded non-binary persons i've met. there is room for everything and everyone in this life.
i've enjoyed all the colours, joy and light that has filled my social media feeds this june. i'm grateful for all of it.
and most of all, i'm glad there is love. anywhere. of any kind.
i hope you've had a lovely little day!
