Dear Friends,

A friend of mine sent me the quote,

“You need chaos in your soul 
to give birth to a dancing star. “
Friedrich Nietzsche
What do you think?  I definitely want to give birth to dancing stars, but I’m not sure that soul chaos is the way to go.  Yet. . . .
Either write in response to this quote, or illustrate the quote in your journal (it would be fun to revisit this quote 3 years from now.)

With love,
