After emerging from the loud music and crowded, sweating bodies of the nightclub, I found myself enveloped in silence and solitude as I struggled up the interminable hill to reach Monteverde. As I walked alone, I felt once again how lucky I was. The night was immensely beautiful with a big, full moon and countless stars pouring their light on me. I felt so safe walking on the unlit dirt roads because I was filled with the sense that I was in a place and time in which nothing bad could ever happen.

For the first time ever, as I gazed at the moon, I didn't wish that someone else were here--whether that person be Mark or Andres or someone I've yet to meet. It was the first time that I felt complete within myself. I didn't need anyone else to be there for it to be a beautiful moment; I didn't need anyone to validate it for me. I was there. I saw. I felt. I was whole and big and my soul stretched out toward the universe. I was safe.
