“The trip ahead would put us in uncomfortable situations for which there would be little prior experience to inform our decisions; it would demand we shift our perspectives and check our timelines at the door; it would push us to reach out to strangers across barriers of language and insecurity; it would require us to acknowledge our smallness in the world.

“If we had more time, I would say over and over again: you deserve to like what you see when you look at yourself. You deserve words — their sanctuary and their release.”
