“There comes a time… on each unique journey when the sojourner must stop to reassess. The common path has run out. The way ahead is not clear. The inner mountain reveals itself. The terrain changes, both formidable and exciting.”

“We are earth. We are water. We are bright early mornings and too-long nights. We are a world at war with nature and countries and the very people we have claimed to love. We are seekers who know not what we seek – something like peace, something like joy, something like less and something like more. If there were easy answers, we would have found them already.”
