"You can't stop being afraid just by pretending everything that scares you isn't there."

The pure, distinct filter of distance
creates beauty
not distilled by familiarity or the
dusty film of ordinary-ness.
Distance romanticizes foreign lands
and strangers.
It breeds stargazers and explorers
travelers and writers.
Distance gives a bird’s-eye view
to the whole of the world,
telescoping ordinary to extraordinary
and drawing me endlessly in.
