On the surface, we might seem similar or very different, but under the surface, something strong and alive pulses inside us.
Here, under the surface, we are very much alike.
Under the surface, we long for something, and this longing is more than just a simple whim or desire that comes from our more pedestrian human lives. It is way under the surface. Way down where marrow enlivens bone and blood runs thick, hot, and blue.
We don’t trust what lies within us, but at the heart of who we are is a love so powerful that it must unfold itself into the world because when it does so, life increases, life grows, life expands — and this is what allows life to continue.
