Do not be afraid of yourself, love. Do not fear your being, your living, your breathing, the fervency of your idea, the quickness of your heart. Do not fear your fear, your sadness, your gladness. You are made of all the same wonderful bits as this earth. There is something of the universe in you--and there is something of you in every place you’ve been, every person you’ve touched. Yes, you’ve shed bits of earth, of universe, of you wherever you have traveled, and onto me-- you have a bit of me on you as well. You exhale stars and I inhale you and perhaps a comet or a piece of Jupiter. All these fragments of the universe, of Neptune, of clay, these tiny atoms have conspired to form you--for some reason-- so boldly live and honor that serendipity, that cosmic chance that you are you.
