A friend of mind posted this on her blog... thought I'd share...
Living Wide Open: Landscapes of the Mind
I will not die an unlived life
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me
to make me less afraid
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance, to live
so that which came to me as a seed
goes to the next as a blossom
and that which came to me as blossom
goes on as fruit.
(Dawna Markova. 2000. I will not die an unlived life: Reclaiming purpose and passion)
