Thanks Grandma Mira!

Barbara Kingsolver's address to Duke graduates this year. It is terrifying. It is most of what I tried to say all last year on the Denim Jumper. And it is achingly beautiful. One taste now:

"The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. The most you can do is live inside that hope, running down its hallways, touching the walls on both sides."

(And Lori, this quote makes me think of you today, as much as anyone. God, you are brave!)

I read her address and the words have stuck with me over the past couple days, sinking in and striking true. Good link.
