I write to know myself. That in writing, bringing out and studying my deepest thoughts, I will meet myself.
I write to give a shape and a form to all that is wordless, and to build a fence around mustang emotions that threaten to stampede over my soft heart.
I write to honor myself. To acknowledge all that lives in me.
I write to create a space for my soul to dance.
I share because there is power in connection. In that moment where our hearts meet and sigh, "Oh, it's true. You have been there. I am not alone." In that moment, we are both at our most human.
I share to shine a light on dark,unspoken places.
I share because I believe burning up my reputation, my togetherness, my 'fine' is a great love. And love wins.
I share to show that in every pit there is a bottom and out of every darkness there is a path. I share to throw a circle of light on the road.
"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love" (Mother Theresa). This is my small thing.
