it was amazing
Read from November 11 to 12, 2010

Goodenough writes with passionate reverence of the science she knows and teaches, and the faith she proclaims with joy. I am overcome. As I was out walking today I was struck by the loss of my best friend this summer, and asked please for a sign that all was well and could continue to be. Continuation. I didn't know how to ask for relief from my pain, but as I came up the last hill I saw a field of tall grass lit like candlelight by the sun, blazing as far as my eyes could see. And tonight I finished this beautiful book I started yesterday. Thank you, Ursula Goodenough for writing a beautiful benediction to and for life.

To the extent that I know myself, I am known. My yearning to be Known is relegated to the corridors of arrogance, and I sing my own song, with deep gratitude for my existence.""
