A Fire Hose Through a Drinking Straw

A reader recently commented that it takes courage to rise above the pain by your true self. I agree. In my case, it did take courage, though at some point, it wasn’t just that I wanted to share what I had inside, so much as it was that I NEEDED to share it. The love and ideas had been building up so much pressure inside me for so long, that I felt I could barely breathe anymore if I didn’t release them. When, with the support of a few key friends and readers, I finally opened up just a little more, the love and ideas exploded from me like a fire hose through a drinking straw.

With Love,
Russ

    I’m sorry I missed your reader’s comment but indeed, it takes a lot to push the world’s supply of water through a tiny straw…especially if it had loops.
