staccato burst: anxiety is love’s killer.

visual poem by debbie millman. (photo:


may you remind yourself that deep breaths distill all anxious flutters.  may you know that all sweet successes take root in flustered failures.  may you learn that to love truly is to dive quite deeply. may you wear a life jacket when swimming in buoyant waters.  and please, may you promise no matter the strength of another’s panic, you will never abandon ship.
