We are here, because we need love, but we are not here only because of love. We are also here because of passion. Because when we watch two people step more fully into who they are we are watching ourselves collectively do the same.
Now, we step into the quiet with them.
We may pretend that passion must always be loud; must announce its arrival from the mountaintops; be the life of the party.
But today, now, passion is quiet, still, supple. It is quiet and fluid in the way that when faced with the choice, a heart will choose life every time it beats.
