Strength

When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. ~Audre Lorde

I can testify to this most heartily - it is 'I' myself who gets in the way of my visions...

If we stick to our convictions we find the strength to move forward and we are stronger for it.

Nice. The photo reminds me of Bird Rock at Point Lobos.♥

Wow, what a story of Audre Lorde. To think that one of her creative writings was rejected by high school teachers and then it ended up being published in Seventeen magazine!

Too bad we lost her in this world too. I didn't find in the article but am wondering if she passed on from breast cancer.

Thanks for sharing!
