"You did the hardest part. You took the jump and you didn't know where you were going to come down. That's it, that's those little brave baby steps we've got to take to try and become whole again. Try to find purpose."
“A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving into a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore but to be in the lake, to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out, it is a experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept the mystery.”
