I choose to inhabit my days*

Skin in the game keeps hubris in check.**
(Nassim Taleb)

A myth is an attempt to express some of the more elusive aspects of life that cannot easily be expressed in logical, discursive speech.^
(Karen Armstrong)

Alchemy takes place within living stories.

Let us be open to the possibilities today brings to us.

(*Dawna Markova, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer: Day 18:
I will not die an unlived life,
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise…

(**From Nassim Taleb’s Skin in the Game.)

(^From Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life.)
