“She was a galaxy, not one planet, she was a forest, not one tree. She was an ocean, not just one river. But the world had taught her to close and be as small as could be. But she woke up one day, longing for that little girl. Who knew she was living in a small corner and not her entire inner world. And so she slowly unlocked each door, deciding she wanted to play, live, go wild, no longer hide… And that girl was finally free, the one who carried a dancing universe of galaxies, forests and oceans inside.” ~S.C Lourie
