take

 "take what you need and leave the rest"
i obeyed this invocation
from nature's storehouse bulletin board
 so i did, and passed it on 
and it came back to me
 a package of wonders
and a book of experiments
from the alchemist aimee
go see this post! you must!

 how i love the work
from asao shimura at asa press

I love that you were able to just take strength like that. And then feel stronger.

And then pass that strength on.
