Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.
I wanted to tell you everything. And that hurt because some things were too scary. Some things even I didn’t understand.
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
If she doesn’t scare the hell out of you a little, she’s not the one.
