“The mystical life is at the centre of all that I do and all that I think and all that I write.”
William Butler Yeats

Timothy J. Keller
“When a newspaper posed the question, “What’s Wrong with the World?” the Catholic thinker G. K. Chesterton reputedly wrote a brief letter in response: “Dear Sirs: I am. Sincerely Yours, G. K. Chesterton.” That is the attitude of someone who has grasped the message of Jesus.”

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

Rose Congratulations on your Mythopoeic Award!


Sørina I had the very great privilege of giving a poetry reading entitled "Poetry and Pattern," with selections from Caduceus at Nyack College on Monday evening. It was an intense, lively, profound event! I will provide a link to the video once it's posted. Meanwhile, why not check out this other version of the same talk? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpszU7...
