As the Pendulum Swings
I will love.
I will be brave.
I will imagine.
I will write and make art.
I will seek out what it means to be human.
I will dream and share possible and impossible pasts, presents, futures, worlds, and universes.
I will give us a place to go.
I will read and listen and learn and empathize and teach.
I will work for equality and care for the planet.
I will fight for free speech and access to information.
I will cover myself in wool and words and walk into the deepest, darkest woods to meet what lives there and rescue those who are trapped.
Together, we will find a path out of the forest and leave markers for those who come after.
