This I Believe

I believe in “the Awakener” in all of us, that part of human beings that asks: How do we reaffirm, above all else, that life is good, and of itself, the greatest pleasure? And, if at times it is surprisingly violent and sad, and we do not have the clarity of vision, each day, to see the beauty of life, inconstant as it is, alternating with sorrow and joy, then we miss the most profound meaning of our lives. And much of life’s simplicity, bounty, and intricacy escapes us entirely.
