“Amazingly, some of us have retained passion. Some of us continue to be disciples of the things we love. We drag our addicted, programmed asses out of deeply-worn ruts. We walk against the grain and the odds, turn away from apathy and accumulation, and stand for something. It may not look like much while you’re doing it. You may feel crazy. You may experience terrifying loneliness. But it should help to remember that you are one of a gentle multitude living “out there” on the lunatic fringe, letting your life be galvanized by the irrational, doing your tiny giant part to restore meaning by giving your gifts to the world. And for that, I thank you.” ~Toko-pa Turner, “Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home”
