21 Peeps. Crowded. Two women from yesterday brought their husbands and everybody else came too. I arrived feeling like my heart was breaking. Ever since coming back from being home I have been in a vulnerable heightened state which is delightful and overwhelming.
When it's this crowded and there are a lot of people I do not know, I usually start supine. To ground the peeps and get a handle on who has shown up.
