From their website:
The world feels so big. So heavy. Branches at your head, rocks at your feet. Voices in your ear. You gawkily balance the world’s call for repair and the weight of your responsibility to others, unsure of your own sound.
“But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own”
– Mary Oliver, from The Journey
