So. If you weren't in Seattle or following the news yesterday, there was a shooting in several parts of the city that left (now) five people dead and one seriously injured. We've had a stupid amount of shootings in Seattle lately--well, any amount of shootings is a terrible amount if you ask me--but this one hit a little closer to home. I didn't know any of the victims personally, but I'd seen two of them perform several times, and a great many of my close friends were very close with many of the people who died yesterday. So it was a strange and freaky day, to say the very very least.

So, things I love and am grateful for? Everything. I am grateful to be alive. I am selfishly grateful that my family and friends weren't killed. I am grateful for information spreading tech so that everyone was constantly updated and could keep themselves as safe as is possible in a situation like that. (That may be the only time in my life that "twitter" will show up on a TiLT post, so savor it.) I love my friends and my family and feel incredibly lucky to know and love so many amazing people who love me. I love the community and interlocking communities I live in and spend time in. I am grateful that I can pursue what I love and that I have enough resources to continue to build a good life for myself. I'm grateful for you. I don't know that I can say much more than that.

This is always a real question for whoever might read this, but I mean it even more this time: what do you love?
