Wherever and whatever you do, continue to emanate love. It’s precious. It’s rare.


You are a wonder, a brilliant, shining light. A dancer and a lover.


You have taught me that there is an immense amount of bravery in allowing yourself to be vulnerable and soft. I always used to think that vulnerability was a sign of weakness, but you showed me that it’s actually a sign of strength.


Thanks for being an awesome example of what it means to be unapologetically yourself. It’s an inspiration to those around you.
