A Reason I Like Dawna Markova (in case you wondered)  

I Will Not Die An Unlived Life

I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible;
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

~ Dawna Markova, from "I Will Not Die an Unlived Life"

I'm glad you like it. She's a favorite of mine. I first encountered her when learning about her theory of perceptual processing.

Thanks! It was a blur of school activity. We're going to celebrate properly after my next residency. :)
