stories included:
In the heart of the world: in the heart of the world, there is a place that holds the secret names of the rocks & the trees & all the children of the earth & around it gather those who hold it dear & each night they stand together to keep it safe, for as long as it takes, till morning comes. & no matter what you have been told, this will always be so, in the heart of the world.
beautiful things: Once, there was a woman who wanted to change the world & at first, she thought it'd be easy, because if everyone could see how beautiful it'd be, it'd take about a minute, but all the people she talked to were too busy to stop & listen. So, she went off & did beautiful things all on her own & pretty soon people were stopping & asking if they could come along & do that, too & that's how she figured out how worlds change.
refuse to pretend:  there is a moment where you finally stop & refuse to pretend this life is not yours & suddenly being strong looks a lot like laughing & crying & dancing & listening deeply to the people you love. & now & then you'll look back at that old way & wonder how you ever believed that life was something to endure.
the gift of you: When you start to crack open, don't waste a moment gathering your old self up into something like you knew before. Let your new self splash like sunlight into every dark place & laugh & cry & make sounds you never made & thank all that is holy for the gift, because now you have no choice but to let all your love spill out into the world.
all of her: Once there was a woman made of fire & light & the smell of rain (& for some strange reason, cherry blossoms in the first days of spring) & many people could not hold all of those things at once & wanted her to pick just one & she ignored them because, in her heart, she knew there were others someday who would see all of her & know the fire & light & smell of rain & cherry would bring the sound of sunlight to places in them they never would have noticed without her being there with them in the world. 
village of women: There is a village of women who know they are fire & they burn fierce with Love & even though each of them lives in different places, far apart, in golden fields & loud cities & by oceans & rivers & underneath the baobabs in Africa, still they come together often in dreams & for all you may think they are just ordinary women you pass on the street every day, they are the ones who hold the Heart of the World for all of us who will come after.
