Bless those who challenge us for they
Remind us of doors we have closed
And doors we have yet to open.

The story of human

  intimacy is one of

   constantly allowing

    ourselves to see those

     we love most deeply in a

       new, more fractured light.

 Look Hard.

      Risk That.

From Helen Macdonald’s book H is for Hawk: “Being a novice is safe. When you are learning how to do something,

you do not have to worry about whether or not you are good at it. But when you have done something, have learned how to do it,

you are not safe anymore. Being an expert opens you up to judgement.”
