“You were once wild here,” Isadora Duncan writes. “Don’t let them tame you.” Ever since I came across that quote last weekend, it’s haunted me, the way things do when there’s a lesson I know they’re trying to teach. Today at church, a friend said to me, “I love how fierce you are about protecting what you need,” and I latched onto that, too. Fierce, I thought. That’s how I want to be known. I came home, looked up the root of the word, and learned that “fierce” originates from the Latin “ferus,” meaning “untamed.” “Don’t let them tame you,” Isadora Duncan says. Stay fierce. Stay wild. Stay free.
