Sometimes I find myself in a pause, like I did this weekend. No laptop, no creativity whatsoever, no guests, no company at all, no inclination to watch TV, or a movie, in limbo. And there in that pause it happens, one moment of clarity, standing out from the rest of time, clear and crisp, etched forever in my mind.
I am human, a woman, just one of me. I am mortal, imperfect, hardly invincible. I cannot change the world by myself. But I can’t sit around and wait for it to change. So here, now, while I have the strength, breath, chance to stand up for what is right; here, now, I stand.
