her name is Kedest and she distracts me from every bad thing in this world.
her free spirit is a reminder of the importance of each moment and the insignificance of tomorrow while today is young with arms wide open, inviting.
Kedest is an Ethiopian name meaning "Saint" or "Holy" and today she reminded me of forgiveness in a way that was so relevant to me and looked so easy for her but forgiveness is anything but.
she made me lunch and we sat and talked, and it was so much better than sitting side by side in front of a big screen playing a movie that neither of us would remember but we'll remember this.
we, as friends, are so many things. we are Richmond, we would say, we are strong, we are unusual, we are crazy, hazardous maybe, we are today, we are...
compelled to push one another to reach all of the potential that we harness now, and raise ceilings and break down walls, and we're young but we're good.
we were put in each other's life to share a smile and a laugh, a healthy meal and an unplanned personal ad.
Kedest, thank you.
