Esther’s life…the way that she lived it imperfectly, empathically, taught me that the hero’s journey is not from weakness from strength. The hero’s journey is like Augustus, that the hero’s journey is from strength to weakness. Esther jumped into the abyss with me, because I was the one who was angry and hopeless with life as it is. Even though Esther’s life was a short life, it was still a real and rich and full life.
