“We must be unafraid of what is difficult. For all living things in nature must unfold in their particular way and become themselves at any cost, and despite all opposition.” Rilke
You cannot test your courage timidly. You have to run through the fire, arms waving, legs pumping and heart beating wildly with the effort of reclaiming something vital, lost, laid aside or just plain forgotten. When you do that, you discover that we shine most brightly in our community, the whole bedraggled, worn, frayed and tattered lot of us, bound together forever by a shared courage, a family forged in the heat of earnest struggle.
Rise up from your pain and discover who you are, at any cost and despite all opposition. We need your shining light among us.
