I will never shy away from overextending myself or being open to the organic process of love flowering between people. I have seen so many people make shipwrecks of themselves because of insecurity. I have seen who I become in my insecurity and it's an exhausting experience. So many people meet now at this juncture of being used to being unloved and used to living on and within their insecurities almost like a survival instinct. I want new survival instincts for all of us, based on security, vulnerability without fear or emotional retaliation.

I love your silences, they are like mine. You are the only being before whom I am not distressed by my own silences. You have a vehement silence, one feels it is charged with essences, it is a strangely alive silence, like a trap open over a well, from which one can hear the secret murmur of the earth itself.
| Anaïs Nin
"Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new."
— Ursula K. Le Guin, from "The Lathe of Heaven"
