Before Royal Way I was isolated, angry, armored, and scared. I had spent six years flying in the backseat of a fighter aircraft, prepared to drop bombs on any given target, at any given time. I was afraid and found it difficult to be with people. People found it difficult to be with me, so I pretended—a lot. Today I am far more than happy. I'm in love.
I wake up in the morning eager to meet the day, feeling the lightness and aliveness that come with being in love. My days are filled with magic moments. I don't do anything to create them; they just happen. The craziness of the world is still there. I navigate through it, as we all do, and I don't carry much of it with me. I don't have room for it.
I'm in love with the world. My life is grander than I had ever imagined possible. I am forever grateful to you, Michael.
