“You’re like the sea.
Beautiful on the surface, without a doubt.
But underneath the waves,
that’s where you are pure art in my eyes.
The further you dive, the more you learn.
The thing is, I don’t think anyone has ever had the lung capacity to really get to explore you.
The caverns and curves that compose your deepest and darkest secrets could be enough to crush any diver.
But I am not any diver.
I can hold my breath.
Let me delve into your sea,
I will not steal your treasures for they are yours to keep.
Share them with me, and let me appreciate you from the ground up.
I promise you, I can hold my breathe.”

“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”
