I’ve thought about this all day but have decided that as painful as it I have to mark today publicly. It is a year since I began my failed first attempt at independence. Tuesday is also my birthday, which will be another painful and complicated day and so I will mark it without fanfare, to the point where I’d like to take a large sleeping pill and ignore the day entirely. The next few weeks will be full of painful milestones, so please forgive the crabbiness in advance.
