Here be dragons

"If we only arrange our life in accordance with the principle which tells us that we must always trust in the difficult, then what now appears to us as the most alien will become our most intimate and trusted experience. How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage."  Rilke

Somewhere in my current difficulties are dragons (princes?) waiting for me to act with courage.  Unless I rise to the challenge honestly and with an open heart I will continue to run,  feeling weaker with each step.
