A Faith of Verbs

I really like this quote:

"This is my living faith, an active faith, a faith of verbs: to question, explore, experiment, experience, walk, run, dance, play, eat, love, learn, dare, taste, touch, smell, listen, speak, write, read, draw, provoke, emote, scream, sin, repent, cry, kneel, pray, bow, rise, stand, look, laugh, cajole, create, confront, confound, walk back, walk forward, circle, hide, and seek." ~ Terry Tempest Williams (Leap)

I love words of action and experience, motifs that spread themselves out across the broad spectrum of humanity, rather like a Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, or an Everyman perspective of the world.

There is a lot to experience in this world - a lot of diversity in humanity. It is not possible to be fully human without experiencing the diversity of souls in humanity.
