Emily, I review these posts periodically, it is like cleaning up the dishes in the kitchen. They always need review and tending. I find things that I missed on the first, second and third reading. It isn't so much that other people's writing is arcane but rather I find that my ability to absorb information is distorted by my expectations. So rereading your comment I see that I missed some very choice words and thoughts that you shared that I feel duty bound to acknowledge.
"The promise of order amidst chaos" and "They wear the world lightly". Are very lovely descriptions of grace, and the awareness of an attainable beauty in living. I think that a person must have grace in order to recognize it as you have. Thank you for sharing your gift.
Thanks for the remark, James, although it is the first time anyone has ever compared reading my writing to washing dishes. :-) "On the second run-through, I realized there was still some dried soup left around the corner of the idea..."
