This is a startling gift: washing up on the shore of your own life, reawakening to the simplest of pleasures.
— Amanda Fall, letter to reader
I don’t want us to sleepwalk through life, to realize what we missed only at a midlife crisis or on our deathbeds. [. . .] I’m not going to take my own life by choosing numbness. I’m choosing, again and again in every moment, to breathe, to live, and to be mindfully aware.
— Lisa Wilson, Thrive interview
