At what point do you become so self-protected that you can no longer do the thing you were created to do? How much protection do you need—and how much can you bear before you stop being able to grow, or fly? – Quinn Caldwell
What is God’s will for a wing? Every bird knows that. – Saint Teresa of Avila
What will our children do in the morning if they do not see us fly? – Rumi
I wanted to write that this rich conversation between artists helped to fortify my soul … but fortification is the problem, isn’t it?
Freedom is a scary, precious thing, calling life to life in all its tender vulnerability.
May we all be brave enough to fly into the face of fear with thundering wing and gentle feather.
