Myka: The world is such a scary place. The most innocent objects can cause destruction and mayhem. A person sees enough of that, and maybe they decide they don't want that much responsibility anymore. A person might think, walking away... okay, not a person. Me. I left. "Life or death" all the time, it was too much. But as a wise and also psychotic woman recently told me, you can't walk away from your truth. So I'm back. Am I ready? The "life or death" thing never goes away. The world is a scary place. First day back. I guess we'll see.
Claudia: Myka. Thanks Goddess. Leena and I were being outnumbered by Team Sausage Fest.
Claudia: We can go home now, poopy-pants. Ha. You've got a new nickname.
Steven Jinks: I like "Jinksy."
Artie: Claudia, I did not come here to spy on you, not the way you think, anyway.
Claudia: Oh, sure. The good kind of spying. Like here, have some flowers, and a puppy, and some spying.
Myka: The world is such a scary place. Sometimes it seems like it's nothing but anger. And violence. And hurt. It can be terrifying when you're out there in it. But if you know where to look for it... the world also has warmth. And love. And forgiveness. The world has joy in it. When you find a place that allows you to experience that joy, when you find people that make you feel safe and loved, like you belong... you don't walk away from it. You fight for it.
