I will not live an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a touch, a promise.

I choose to risk my significance: to live, so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, &that which came to me as blossom goes on as fruit.
