“On every fourth step, you are meant to fall down. Not occasionally, not once, not twice, but on every fourth step. The ground opens up, the wind blows, a branch hits you in the head, you trip on stones, your heart breaks, you’ve got to fold the laundry, and they’ve closed the two left lanes. Here on the fourth step, all the forces gather together to stop you. And some people, when they fall down, they lie there for the rest of their lives. And some people learn how to fall-down-get-up. That is one move. Fall-down-get-up.” ~ Naomi Newman, from her monologue Snake Talk, as quoted in Gregg Levoy’s Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life.
