"Long have you timidly waded, holding  a plank by the shore.
Now I will you to be a bold swimmer,
to jump off in the midst of the sea, rise again, nod to me, shout, 
and laughingly dash with your hair." 
~ Walt Whitman ~

We are more repressed than we realize, or can comprehend. We back ourselves into corners and trap ourselves in little boxes. We make up endless reasons why we can't and why we don't and why we won't. We live stultifying lives and think ourselves free. Let's think again, and reconsider the possibilities. Maybe we can, actually, and maybe we will. Maybe we needn't be small and quiet. Maybe life and God invite us daily to rise.

I honor the call to be my best self.
