The human heart is the home of democracy. It is where we embrace our questions. Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with out whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinions?
~ Terry Tempest Williams
Your story does not stand alone.
it is interwoven
with the stories of countless others,
affected by and affecting
the lives of persons you love
and persons you do not even know.
It is, furthermore, a page
in the book of the entire universe.
Name it as such
and dare to claim as your own,
that bigger story.
