When I was so anxious for stardom, so driven, you used to tell me “When the icon is ready the platform appears’. I wanted it now I always wanted it now I didn’t have any patience. You used to say I was learning to be a star by not yet being a star. I was learning balance and compassion and the nature of accessibility. I thought you helped me through tough times on my climb to the top. Now I realize you were teaching me how to be on the top. I have the platform. I am an icon and because of you I know what to do with it. Thank you so much.
Do your laundry, remember your nieces and nephews on their birthdays, treat everyone you meet with respect including yourself and let the magic come to you. Yes you will be a star then we can begin. -V.K.
