I will take up space.

I will take up space.

I will reach down into the cavernous inside and embrace the most precious parts with tender hands, peeling the petals back to show you little pieces of me that would otherwise remain a mystery.

I will take you in. I will feel you, rich and rippling inside me, where this love makes sense.

I will build bridges. I will trust the lines that spread shapes of wonder into this world. I will speak words to conjure connections.

This saturated spaciousness lets me know you’re listening. Sometimes the answers are here right away, and sometimes a long while after. But they are always generous.

Even in their unresolvable forms, I’m reminded that none of us know how to do it, but we’re already getting it right, crying tears and spilling happy.
