‘[W]ithout people pushing against you quest to do something worth talking about, it’s unlikely to be worth the journey. Persist.’*
When electrical lighting looked to be a possibility there was resistance: too much exposure to such light would result in eye problems, nervous breakdowns, and even freckles.
We may smile on this side of the invention of electric lighting, but right now there are things we are resisting and there are things we must advance: thresholds to cross so that we might grow in our humanity, growing through the journey.
