The task: Create a life of your own design, that fits this version of you, here & now, in the very skin you’ve fought to inhabit in the present tense, which you’ve also fought to inhabit. stop trying to fit into the life of yesterday and yesterday.
time & space are still slippery, just-out-of-reach notions — but exceptionally instead of as strict rule.
this is the beginning, this day, hour, this very minute — all you’ve ever truly owned, and so briefly, but it’s yours so take it and go. leave the past, put it away, file it under “fossils.”
and fully, heart & mind & soul wrapped up in this mottled, scarred, beautifully alive skin,
take the leap.
