Changing Course. ~ Candace Magnuson

I speak from experience

I am neither pure nor righteous

I slog through physical imbalance, mental unrest and spiritual yearning

I have beaten my head in anguish that I should, I should, I should

But I can look back and see how much light now shines in

And I have watched others and sought to assist those like me who seek that light

So I say to you that it has been my experience that when trying to divert a large current it is more effective to slowly bend its shores than to throw up a wall in the middle
