Brighton is well, home and more than that,

it is where I came home to my self.

It has brought nothing but joy and exhilaration, deep abiding love and continual demonstration of that, growth and acceleration.

I am so much fuller for all the people that I have met, the joy that I have shared in, the places that I have explored and all of this fills me with gratitude, I am blessed.
