Quote of the Day (Poet Brenda Hillman, on ‘The Ones Who Love Us’)

“The ones who love us, how do they
break through our defenses?...
Their baffled voices melting our wax walls
with a candle, the ones who understand
what being is—the glowing, the broken,
the wheels, the brave ones—
        they have their courage,
you have yours,,,;
        when you meet the one you love,
it is so rare. When you meet
the one who loves you, it is extremely rare."— American poet, activist, editor, and teacher Brenda Hillman, from In a Few Minutes Before Later (2022)
