My bat mitzvah!
My entrance into womanhood.
I was searching for the words to capture how I so deeply connect with my inner 12-year-old self—that pure, innocent girl who had not yet explored the sexual sphere, which would end up wreaking havoc on her emotional life.
How to say that? How to capture it?
Am I at peace?
Or still searching?
How to mark this landmark in time?
And then, later that day, at a friend’s house, I discovered my answer.
And wouldn’t you know, it’s celebrating its 25th anniversary too 🙂
