Roger’s Recent Updates

“All I know, lying in this bed or not lying here, is that this is the life that was given to me. The life that throbs along through any and all of my moments: this is it! If ever I wonder what my life was meant to look like, I have only to look around me. This, whatever I am doing or not doing, is what it is. This, right here, is as good as it gets! Your "one wild and precious life," as Mary Oliver says. And when you follow its movement, without trying to direct it with preconceived plans for the future, your life will lead you where you need to go. When you trust it, your body, rather than your mind, will walk you through the life you are meant to be living, whatever it may be.”
Roger Housden, Seven Sins for a Life Worth Living

“When you die, God and the Angels will hold you accountable for all the pleasures you were allowed in life that you denied yourself.”
Roger Housden, Seven Sins for a Life Worth Living

“But it happens, and I am thankful enough for that, for those fleeting, wakeful moments of beauty and truth. They are the real joy of being human, brief matches that flare in the dark.”
Roger Housden, Seven Sins for a Life Worth Living
