I spend much of my time listening to ordinary people who believe that inspiration can transform the world.
More than a century ago, the philosopher William James wrote:
“I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny, invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man’s pride.”
This perfectly describes my posture today, as a writer, soul friend, wife and mother.
Stories give us permission to dare new visions of wholeness – worlds hospitable to hope and hurt and wonder.
I hope that my blog will be filled with such dares – provocations, epiphanies, playful experiments.
The ultimate sacrament is Now.
