Rainbows in closets

I’m sitting in my unfinished closet.

In the middle of my room sits a faucet.

I’m ready, open, and embracing change.

any form will do.

Feels oh so good to smile at the sun

and feel it smiling back too.

My closet’s calming.

I could sit here for days.

But there’s life beyond this calming paint-

A rainbow of mints, oranges, greens & grays.
I find the longer life gets,

the more colors I’ll see.

In smiles, in hearts, in closets,

and sometimes in me.

I spoke to my placement officer for an hour about 10 minutes ago. She told me the best news ever: After nearly a year of slow progress I have finally been QUALIFIED FOR SERVICE!!!! WHAT!!??? YES.

I feel like I feel when I climbed a mountain for the first time in Rio (:

….and only 2 weeks after I was medically qualified (https://lostinlostnation.wordpress.com/2012/09/28/fina-freakin-ly/).

People weren’t kidding when they said it was a very slow process that speeds up towards the end!

She called it a “milestone” and it truly feels like a milestone. I am looking forward to the future.

I may be receiving information about my invitation within two weeks!

Stay Tuned!
