“An animal with a foot caught in a trap does not seem to despair. It is all closed in. A kind of still, intense waiting. Is this a key? Keep busy with survival. Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember that nothing stays the same for long, not even pain..” - May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude
