This week's piece in the Lakeville Journal, readable here with free registration. Fair use excerpt:
"We see the same world with a different sense of time. I, who have known some of life’s limitations and lost opportunities, have a job that has me thinking in forest time, but a personal life that is rooted in middle age and a sense of time’s passing.
He sees the forest that is there in the seed and is not discouraged by the thought that it will be a lifetime before his vision is realized."
