4) admit when i operate from a place of hurt & loneliness
5) believe in all of our infinite capacity for transformation
6) provide care as much as i provide critique
7) respect limitations & constraints
8) honor silence as a form of presence
9) feel & love, militantly
10) refuse the dismissal of art & interdependence & magic
11) find immensity in what they call insignificant
