And So It Begins...

To dream anything that you want to dream.
That is the beauty of the human mind. 
To do anything that you want to do. 
That is the strength of the human will. 
To trust yourself to test your limits. 
That is the courage to succeed.

Leaning Into the Light

How is one to live ...
when one finds darkness
not only in one's culture, 
but within oneself?
There are simply no answers 
to some of the great pressing questions. 
You continue to live them out, 
making your life 
a worthy expression 
of leaning into the light.
Barry Lopez,
American writer
