‘Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame . Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams .. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, ‘It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.’

How many roads you’ve traveled, how many dreams you’ve chased, cross sand and sky and gr

How many roads you’ve traveled, how many dreams you’ve chased, cross sand and sky and gravel looking for one safe place. Will you make a smoother landing? Will you break your fall from grace? Into the arms of understanding? Looking for one …safe place. Oh life is trial by fire, and love’s the sweetest taste. And I pray it lifts us higher…to one safe place. That’s all, that’s all, that’s all.

Elphaba (Wicked the Musical)

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by the rules
Of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It’s time to try
Defying gravity
I think I’ll try
Defying gravity
And you can’t pull me down!
