" I am made of long shadows and falling leaves. I am in every sigh and every breath. I am in every contraction and expansion. My hearts beats like the flapping of birds’ wings. I am bare feet and two souls and both heart and stone. I am burning fire and equal portions of joy and sorrow.
I am an outsider in my own land but I am loved and understood. I am the birth and death of love and the death and birth of love. I am a bird falling and I am a bird that finds flight. ”
