|A Cottage by the Sea||
Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. Daniel Webster
What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.
If time be of all things the most precious, wasting time must be the greatest prodigality.
For your sake, I really hope you didn't park your car along the banks of the Arno River in Florence. Because it may be stuck in a giant sinkhole.
The knowing that characterizes the second half of life is open to mystery, drawn to the depths, and ready to risk.
Everything life has to offer is always right here wherever I am right now. There is no place more alive and sacred than this place. No time more alive and sacred than this time.
