    My swatch had clouds on the face and a clear and light blue band. My former Somebody rocked that watch…at least in her mind. I hate your beautiful watch too.

    Such powerful writing, Heather! I love the way you weave in all the old maxims about time, showing what they mean to you now. My favorite line is, “I am Somebody.” Yes, you are.
    Thank you for this.

Love you and look forward to meeting your family someday.
