The soul should always stand ajar,
ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.

MOXIE: It’s a street-smart spirit
that’s as old as recorded history,
and as new as the riding sun.
David had it; Goliath didn’t.
It’s that intangible tangible.
You don’t learn it in school and you can’t get it from a book.
It can jump oceans and move mountains.
It says, “Make your life what it can be.
Take your life wherever it can go.”
