with the idea of being in love?

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
