GLEANINGS FOUND HERE AND THERE:
The fact of storytelling hints at a fundamental human unease, hints at human imperfection.
Where there is perfection there is no story to tell.
~ Ben Okri
We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles.
Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gratitude is the understanding that many millions of things come together and live together and mesh together and breathe together in order for us to take even one more breath of air,
that the underlying gift of life and incarnation as a living, participating human being is a privilege, that we are miraculously, part of something, rather than nothing.
~ David Whyte
