blossom in the desert

Favorite discovery of the year: Lilias Trotter.

Come, look, see.

"Will it not make life narrow, this focusing? In a sense, it will - just as the mountain path grows narrower, for it matters more and more, the higher we go, where we set our feet - but there is always, as it narrows, a wider and wider outlook, and purer, clearer air. Narrow as Christ's life was narrow, this is our aim; narrow as regards self-seeking, broad as the love of God to all around. Is there anything to fear in that?"

Here and there, home for the summer, at least (Illinois). I'm up to some exciting new things... More than fits in a comment box, anyway... post / email forthcoming ;)
