My heart isn’t big enough to love the whole expansive universe at the same time.

Space is not a word I associated with love for most of my life. I grew up longing for the freedom of stretching further away from the intimacy of my family and small, Saskatchewan town. I sat in the farm house window sill in my bedroom, staring up at the expansive, Prairie sky of stars, full of wonder at all the space in the universe for all of us.
