  1. My dearest Lou
    I’m thinking of you so much today as you start on your wonderful journey.
    I’m reading a beautiful book at the moment – Mom gave it to me to read – The Gift from the Sea by Ann Morrow Lindbergh (Charles Lindbergh’s wife). Even though it was published in 1955 its still so relevant. The following paragraph made me think of you:

    “The shape of my life is determined by so many things; my background and childhood, my mind and its education, my conscience and its pressures, my heart and its desires. I want to give and take from my family, to share with friends and community, to carry out my obligations to man and to the world, as a woman, as an artist, as a citizen.
    But I want first of all – in fact, as an end to these other desires – to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact – to borrow from the language of the saints – to live in “grace” as much of the time as possible. By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony…”

    Isn’t that lovely?
    Enjoy your pilgrimage, my dear Lou
    With all my love
