“One often meets her destiny on the road she takes to avoid it.”
Jessi Kirby, Golden

“I read once that water is a symbol for emotions. And for a while now I've thought maybe my mother drowned in both.”
Jessi Kirby, Moonglass

“But sometimes life gives us those rare moments where we do see chance as it’s happening. And in those moments, we have a choice. And sometimes we have to take a risk. And it’s scary. It makes us vulnerable. But I know now it’s worth it.”
Jessi Kirby, Golden
