Inside the Lion’s Paw


Being brave sounds good theoretically, but I don’t always know where to start.  For example, I am faced with a difficult choice today.  No matter what I do, someone will be disappointed.  I want to do the brave thing.  I want people to know I love them.  On days like today, I really, really wish I was one of those people who – you know, right? – doesn’t make such a big deal out of everything.

When I feel the quick sand pulling at my feet, it’s time to come here, and make something.  That is crystal clear for me by now.  Just to see myself peeking out into the world changes things, changes me, even though nothing is really different.  I feel better.  So maybe that’s enough bravery for today.
