It takes a lot of courage
To release the familiar
And seemingly secure,
To embrace the new.
But there is no real security
In what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security
In the adventurous
And exciting.
For in movement there is life,
And in change
There is power

Alan Cohen

A long time ago, when I left New Zealand on a round the world trip, that saw me settle in Montreal, Canada, a dear friend of mine gave me this poem to inspire me to keep moving and follow my heart.
