2017. Striking out on a beckoning path to adventures unknown. Tapping into a newfound keg of strong spirited courage and taking a deep draft. Breaking with the timid habits of fear of failure, criticism, and self doubt. Loosing my pen from its dusty quiver. I grasp onto it tightly as it pulls onward. I let it take the lead. The quill expands, morphs into my wings and I fly.
