Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

Taking advice for 2017 from a Trappist monk...


You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.
-Thomas Merton

I'm not really sure how else to step into this most uncertain year...

...may it bring out the best in all of us,
dear readers.
