Words: They can make us or break us.

They can be like a sun, words. They can do for the heart what light can for a field.

~ St. John of the Cross, Love Poems from God (trans. Daniel Ladinsky) ~

Words. They can break backs. Break spirits. Break hearts...

Open...

Open to the possibility of words shining light on what can happen when the sun shines through the cracks onto the limitless field of possibility in our hearts.

We use words. Every day.
