"Be kind. Everyone is fighting a great battle." -St. Athanasious
…from one of my many clippings:
"One adventure is over; it is time for another. I have a different kind of work to do now. I am growing into a new season. At the water's edge, watching the tiny, teeming life of that mysterious place between high and low tides, the intertidal zone, I begin to accept the relentless flux that is the condition of these days. I am not old and not young; not betrothed and not alone; not broken and yet not quite whole; thinking back, looking forward. But present. These are my intertidal years. "
-I wish I remember who wrote it. It came from the NYT Magazine or Oprah's Mag.
