Lucy H. Pearce
“Often we can get caught in our own struggles, our own small stories, that we forget our place in the larger story arc – the way that our actions, our choices, our achievements can and will blaze trails for that who come after us, so that they do not have to spend their time and energy re-fighting the same battles.

For sure we walk a spiral path, but for generations of women the spirals were so tightly packed that it seemed they were going round in circles – let us blaze trails so that the path we walk takes in wider and wider sweeps of human experience.

Trail blazing is what we do when we find ourselves in the wilderness, with no path to guide us but our own intuitive understanding of nature and our destination. At times we must walk through the night, guided only by the stars. We know when to sit and rest, to shelter from storms, when to gather water, and what on the trail will sustain us and what will do us harm. We are courageous and cautious in equal measure, but we are driven forward, not only by our own desire to reach our destination, but also by the desire to leave a viable way for others who follow.

Trail blazing is an art-form. It is how we find paths through what before was wilderness. We push aside braches, or cut them back, we tramp down nettles and long grasses, ford rivers and streams, through the inner and outer landscapes.”
Lucy H. Pearce, Burning Woman

“First they will laugh... after that they will either deny or follow you.”
Kushiro Shoko

“You didn't saw what I did. Your perception is not the same with my vision. What you thought is not actually my scheme. You are not me and I am not you. Despite of differences I respect you. We are diverse and so our customs, cultures, traditions and beliefs are. Simply we can never exactly think the way as others do... at least lend your ears, use your nervous system along with metacognitive ability.”
Kushiro Shoko

“I don't worry about people "copying" me. Their next move can't happen until I make mine.”
