      Intensity is the pursuit of aliveness.

      Inspiring. Life is fascinating if believe it is and live it fully. Who is Ava?

      The way Ava describes intensity makes me think of how I feel when I’m fully in a flow state of whatever I am doing. “Intense” is how I feel when paying attention to one thing (and one thing only).

      Sometimes intensity just feels like presence.
