For my first post I would like to share the inspiration for this web log.
A few years ago, while reading my “juniper” stories out of this great book, The Book of Children’s Classics, I came across this one: Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney, maybe you know it. It describes the life of a girl who becomes a woman by way of asking questions fulfilling dreams and keeping promises. The best line and most moving moment was that of her grandfather who makes her promise, “there is a third thing you must do” he says to little Alice, ” you must do something to make the world more beautiful.”
It stuck. It rang true for my every existence. So simple, yet difficult.
I too have set out on this very task and intend to keep my promise.
If only with this blog, make one life in this world more beautiful with my words, thoughts, or love.
