It comes before a fall.
It collectively describes a grouping of lions.
And during the month of June, it is the LGBT community’s rallying cry in cities word-wide to presence their identities and rights in the social and cultural landscape.
This weekend, Detroit celebrates Pride.
I can be proud of many things.
But lately, it’s the smaller things that have become significant.
Like choosing to lift at a slightly lighter load.
Even though I know I can lift more, I don’t want to compromise the possibility that I may not be able to enjoy training tomorrow if I exhaust myself today.
Like choosing to play a fewer gigs and sets.
Even though I know I can play more, I don’t want to compromise the possibility that I may not be able to enjoy playing tomorrow if I exhaust myself today.
So I am proud of these lesser things.
It’s because in the long run, they are contributing to pride in something much greater.
