perspicacious poetry

Perspicacious. adj. [pur-spi-key-shuhs] having keen mental perception and understanding.

I recently fell in love with the beautiful poetry of Atticus in Love Her Wild. It’s amazing how a few brief lines can be so poignant. He seems to possess the precise words that every girl is longing to hear.

“It didn’t matter that she fell apart, it was how she put herself back together.” – Atticus

The first time I heard of Love Her Wild, we were standing in my sister’s kitchen when she asked if I was familiar with this Instagram sensation poet, Atticus. She read me a handful of excerpts from his Instagram feed and instantly the acute eloquence had my eyes stinging with tears. When she gave me the book for Christmas, I devoured it in one sitting.

afraid of heights (above) is one that especially grabbed me for perfectly capturing how I feel at this moment. I’m nervous (let’s be honest – terrified) to walk away from a comfortable, consistent, successful career and leave everything to chance.

But the greater fear is never having taken the chance, rolled the dice, gone all in. Fear of playing it safe and not risking everything for the rewards. Of taking a leap of faith without knowing if there’s a safety net.

And now Page Stationery has an equally beautiful line of Love Her Wild letterpress stationery and art prints! Today, I’m off to buy picture frames to adorn my walls with this fabulous collection as a constant reminder that doing the things that scare us most also have the greatest rewards.
