Excerpt from “Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace“

So, what can we learn from their watery ends? Is there some lesson on how to be friends? I think what it means is that central to living a life that is good is a life that’s forgiving. We’re creatures of contact, regardless of whether we kiss or we wound. Still, we must come together. Though it may spell destruction, we still ask for more, since it beats staying dry, but so lonely on shore. So, we make ourselves open while knowing full well that it’s essentially saying, “Come pierce my shell.”
