11 when it’s not pretty, every day,and if you can source your own life from its present. I want to know if you can live
12 with failure, your  and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!” It
13 doesn’t interests  me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the
14 night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the childrens. It
15 don’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the
16 fire with me and not shrink back. It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have study. I want to know
17 what sustains you, from the inside, when all else fall  away. I want to know if you can be alone with
18 yourself and if  you true  like the company you keep in the empty moments.”
