It is amazing what happens when you are humbled. All of a sudden your feet touch the ground. you are grounded. The concrete supports your body in a more secure way than you have ever been aware of in your life. You know where you end and the world begins and there is something wonderful and comforting about that.
You are grounded. the earth is beneath you and you see the way you walk on it–next to friends, alongside enemies. You walk on the ground, grounded.
