a worthy purpose…

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness.
It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Let it fly. …


The trick, it seems, is to be able to hold both things very close – the gratitude and the misery – and then, with a semblance of faith, to let them fly.

Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

Monday morning and the familiar…

Live & Learn

morning-coffee

Here’s the true secret of life: We mostly do everything over and over. In the morning, we let the dogs out, make coffee, read the paper, help whoever is around get ready for the day. We do our work. In the afternoon, if we have left, we come home, put down our keys and satchels, let the dogs out, take off constrictive clothing, make a drink or put water on for tea, toast the leftover bit of scone. I love ritual and repetition. Without them, I would be a balloon with a slow leak.

Listen…


Where our deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet, we hear a further call.

To welcome Spring


“When spring came, even the false spring,
there were no problems except where to be happiest.”

Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
