WE COME UNBIDDEN into this life, and if we are lucky we find a purpose beyond starvation, misery, and early death which, lest we forget, is the common lot.
Life, too, is like that. You live it forward, but understand it backward.
I do see the ordinary miracles under skin and rib and muscle, visions concealed from their owner. Is there a greater privilege on earth?
We are all fixing what is broken. It is the task of a lifetime. We’ll leave much unfinished for the next generation.
