The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.
What can we do but keep on breathing in and out, modest and willing, and in our places?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
