“What we've been taught is climax, is but an account of another's appraised peak atop a mountain or molehill. If we yield to what others circumscribe as high or low, we might not walk further than stimulation or climb higher than exhaustion." — Jen e. Limon

“The ideal state of a frozen dessert yields to melting beneath the sun's rays, so we tend to rush the enjoyment of ice cream before it changes into something sticky and less pleasurable. Man, too, goes through states of freezing and melting, but if we standby only in his ideal state, we miss the far reach of stickiness through each phase, which, if observed with patience and allowed to cover our hearts, can become a great sweetness to our souls.” ~ Jen e. Limon

“In hospitals, illness is allowed the freedom to wander antiseptic halls naked and wearing a countenance of pain without question. Although not stated verbally, it is understood that healing walks among crowds but happens only within the individual. We don’t ask those plainly naked and hurting to feign wellness, yet we look upon those clothed and who carry joyful expression, as if exempted from nakedness and pain. The eyes are not equipped to see the automatic wisdom of the body, and the body is not equipped to heal the ignorance that lives in the eyes." ~ Jen e. Limon

“The root is inclined to reach upwards to fulfill its needs. Should it yearn for only a season, its leaves shall not again return. Should it ignore its appetite, the soil in which it resides will reveal its hunger to the observer. The tree cannot possess itself without consuming the nutrients of its possessor. Only in connection does it drink, and so thrive." ~ Jen e. Limon

“Over time, the instinct to love naturally builds a hospice of pain, but love is most vibrant when granting its suffering a license for freedom, where the road to transforming pain has no dead ends.” ~ Jen e. Limon
