Coquitlam Falls, BC

tamed—by our parents, by our religions, by our cultures—and it constricts us in some ways. It some ways it’s great, and in some ways it’s not. When we go wild, when we find the part of ourselves that is absolutely true to us and start peeling away all the socialization, then be-wilder-ment changes us into something we cannot imagine. It’s like the caterpillar trying to imagine flying. Until you’ve gone through the transformation, you cannot become the thing with wings.”

~ Martha Beck, in conversation with Maria Shriver
