"I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom. " ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes

small stone: Rise

My heart soars.
Women rising, men rising.
Calling for an end to the broken bodies, broken spirits, broken hearts
of women and girls, everywhere.
The drums beat. The voices chant: Break the silence. Break the chain.
My body joined in dance with thousands in my community,
in spirit with the rest of the world.
No care for color, size, political bent.
Simply united harmony, for this one moment.
For this one cause.
For women and girls everywhere to feel safe, supported, respected.
Rise, sisters and brothers, rise.
