"I was, in fact, homesick for wildness, and when I found it I knew how intimately - how resonantly - I belonged there. We are charged with this - all of us. For the human spirit has a primal allegiance to wildness, to really live, to snatch the fruit and suck it, to spill the juice." - Jay Griffiths, Wild: an Elemental Journey

Wooden Heart

"Everything falls apart.  And at the exact same time it all comes together."

That is my favorite quote from this song/spoken word poem that brought me to to tears on my last morning in Toledo.  I've been thinking about it ever since Scott and Krissy showed it to me.  It is an anthem of vulnerability.  Of humility.  Of love.

Let's wash each other with tears of joy and tears of grief.
