Delicious moment

Woke up feeling happy and content. What a great gathering! I met many wonderful new people and got to know others a little deeper. As I hugged one person goodbye, I told him how much I appreciated the great job he did while we were all there. He smiled and took in my praise, returning his own: "And you are fucking *fierce*!"

This brought me such joy! I've been called many things, but rarely fierce. I know what he meant, and why he said it: I got unexpected opportunities to express my passion and my drive to build beautiful community, and I got to share some of the things I care about most.

It felt incredibly good to be seen and affirmed. Squee!

It's lovely when people can see you for who you are.
