Tell that imperious voice

The power is in the balance: we are our injuries, as much as we are our successes.

To live is to change, to acquire words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know.

Small change, small wonders-  these are the currency of my endurance and ultimately of my life.

The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.

Stop a minute, right where you are  Relax your shoulders, shake your head and spine like a dog shaking off cold water. Tell that imperious voice in your head to be still...
