"When Harry Potter is trying to find the platform for the train that will bring him to his new school, he faces a blank wall where Platform 9 3/4 should be. Then the mother of a student who has made this trip before gives him advice. She encourages him to run right toward the platform (the threshold), promising that it will yield when he gets to it. That's what I am learning: to trust the amount of light I have been given and run right toward the next doorway. I no longer want to take my cues from people who are themselves frightened. I don't want to spend my hours defending the last place from which I looked. I want to move toward this force that is forever pushing through the events in our lives. And that I should have a companion for this next leg of the journey feels very simple and very true. Everything lies before us.”
