This is the tag line from poet Heather Bell’s blog, There Are Many Things In This World That You Must Do Alone. One of the best mastheads ever.

BTW, Heather has published another volume of poems, Expletive Deleted. More information for purchasing it on Anhinga. (A memorable poem by Heather is posted here.)
