The courage on my mind of late is another sort, much more quiet and often unnoticed. Acts of silent kindness by gentle souls, a sort of daily practice which may seem deceptively unexceptional. It’s the courage to seek bright spots amidst storm clouds, find rainbows where others only see dingy oil slicks, perseverance to hold steady in a crazy world by simply being good to one another. Courage to trust. Maybe every being who grows and learns is courageous in their own way. Wildest of all, to seek connection and to love without fear or bounds, that is the most courageous of all.

    Love the photos, especially that little smile peaking out of the sling.
