  “My favorite quote is probably from one of my favorite musicians, Maynard James Keenan. The quote is, ‘One day if youre lucky, you realize that you are not the story. You are [a] part of the story and the story is much bigger than you.’ Im only just a part of the story [in] this world. I am not the main focus of everything, but were all in this together. We have a direct relationship with nature and with everything around us. [In that sense,] its more validating. Ive kind of felt it before but hearing somebody else say [those words] was a good feeling. The biggest lesson I’ve learned was realizing that it was okay to not fit in. [As] I havent fit in with my peers very well. [It was impactful just] realizing that its okay to not be like everybody else and [its important to] figure out who you are. Change is hard. But every time you are in a new situation or a new environment, youre learning things about yourself and about other people. It’s important to realize that it might be hard, but youre going to grow from it and youre going to become a better version of yourself.” - Kristi Ponder, Art
