Spirit food: "Every one of is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life [...] And onward full tilt we go, pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute, driven in spite of everything to make good on a new shore.

Time to take this life for what it is." -- Barbara Kingsolver, HIGH TIDE IN TUCSON
