“You are not a troubled guest on this earth,

you are not an accident amidst other accidents
you were invited from another and greater night
than the one from which you have just emerged.”

We knew our greatest freedom was in taking flight at night, when we could steal the heavenly darkness for ourselves, navigating through the intelligence of stars and the constellations of our own making in the delight and terror of our uncertainty.” -Terry Tempest Williams
