This, I Fear. ~ Jennifer Sofie Gulick

I fear the face of resolve

locking doors that once opened so easily turning my back to the old and familiar

I fear paralysis

emotional asystole

when love begins to suffocate and the comfortable becomes intolerable

when inaction seems the only tolerable course of action

this, I fear.

Jennifer Sofie Gulick is an instructor at the National Outdoor Leadership school and lives in Eastern Idaho, under the veil of the Grand Tetons. She enjoys traveling by foot, by boat, and by horseback, living minimally, and growing and eating organic food.
