Perpendicular Lines

5/16/16 Notes to Myself:

"I am determined to maintain
the perpendicular position"
Lucy Stone

"Perpendicular lines make
right angles; they make possible
extensions of both height and
breadth. Right angles are
weight-bearing. We speak
of asserting something "squarely",
making perpendiculars.

People who speak their minds freely
and assert their individuality
feel perpendicular to the corners
they create, their points of view,
are sturdy and open. Others can
use them to build structures on.

If we're centered in ourselves,
others won't throw us off
balance. Each of us needs to find
our own center so that we can occupy
our own place. Others will recognize
us. Together we'll build high and wide."
