I hope this day finds you crying.
Crying out in laughter, tears streaming down your howling face.
Crying with tears of love, your heart radiating so brightly it hides the sun in the sky.
Cry tears of grief that leave room for the sweetness you missed while lamenting the bitters.
Cry out in the pain of birthing a new you, stomping upon fallen, wet leaves within the forest of your mind.
May you leave your mind and find a space that calls out for your voice, your tears creating new rivers and oceans, like the Mothers of olde.
Surely, you realize this Earth is no mistake. She exists because women like you, women with their tears and love and anguish and joy, have always existed.
Thank you for continuing the tradition of crying, for tears contain salt and salt has always been a healer and cleanser.
The salt of this Earth is women like you.
