points to ponder
Points to Ponder
  • “We could you know. We can live any way we want…The thing is to stalk your calling in a certain skilled and supple way, to locate the most tender and live spot and to pug into that pulse”. A Dillard
  • “How can we know the dancer from the dance?” W.B. Yeats
life is after all
Life is after all

a search for the secrets of growth

and no one is expected

to have them all

We are judged not by what

we know

But by the honesty of our search
