Some words from the space:
It takes courage to step into the space
to take a journey that we know is precarious.
And the steps unbalance us,
throw us sideways,
into a space where we know we just might fall.
The edges of the stones dig into us.
We know they’re coming
but they always find the raw spaces
where we thought we were already calloused:
a push into a space we can no longer control…
Take hold of a piece of gravel.
Feel its sharp edges dig into your skin.
Let it remind you of your human-ness
of the bitter sweet
path we walk.
