Bold, Beating Hearts

Only the biggest hearts are open like this. They have to be. They're too big for your bodies. 

Keep free, you beautiful, brave, bold, beating hearts! 

Keep pumping love into everything you create. 

From an online friend, someone I've never met in person. I wrote it down on a yellow Post-It note and stuck it to my computer screen. It keeps falling and the sticky stuff is covered in dog fur and wool fibers and dust, and I keep sticking it back up. A daily reminder, as I sit down to work, that I can do this, that we can do this, that we together are stronger and better than we are alone, that these risks we're taking and these dreams we're pursuing and the things we are creating mean something.
