Back when we were young we used to catch fireflies in jars and call it magic. We roamed the space of unstoppable while our dreams swam the seas of infinity. They say there is a certain order to this world: The dawn of day is supposed to be followed by dark of night. The rush […]

If Not Love by BethAnne Kapansky

If Not Love by BethAnne Kapansky

If not love, then fear- and I will live a paper life, while my heart sits collecting dust on a shelf, I will stay beholden- a prisoner to the lie of lack, and close off the most tender parts of my humanity, and I will forever occupy the same, safe square foot I do now. […]

BethAnne Kapansky – She
