It’s amazing what a lot of sleep and a fun-filled gab with your best friend/cousin/brother-in-queerness will do. This says it all:
Stars when you shine, you know how I feel
Scent of the pine, you know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine, and I know how I feel . . .
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me
And I’m feelin’. . . good.
Yeah, baby! Nina Simone said everything I feel.
