"After awhile it comes down to a question of life choices not a choice between you or her, this new sea town or that bruising city but about putting one foot in front of the other and ending up somewhere that looks like home."
- Cherríe Moraga, The Last Generation (1999)

The way of love is not
a subtle argument.

The door there
Is devastation.

Birds make great sky circles
Of their freedom.

How do they learn?

They fall, and falling,
They are given wings.

- Rumi
"The wave does not need to die to become water. She is already water."
