I believe in the inherent power and importance every individual.
I believe this is not expressed through dogmatic proclamations of political philosophy, but rather through things that calloused hands and heavy hearts can feel as much as the mind.
I believe in honest transmission of appreciation, in not holding back for fear of awkwardness of rejection. I believe that life is far too short to risk sacrificing relationships over ideals. I believe that even if unrequited, loving others makes us stronger.
I believe in the beauty and complexity of the human hive.
I believe in the hard “I love you’s” and in kind words spoken. I believe in putting yourself out there and putting your faith into another person, when they just might need it the most, even if you know they will be moving on soon towards different horizons.
To be a catalyst.
To be silent
Always moving forward
This is my magnum opus.
This is my loneliness sanctified.
