Book Recommandation

On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity and Getting Old, by Parker Palmer (2018)

This is a book – a little book – that evokes gratitude, offers wisdom, and helps bring to memory those forgotten gems we perhaps undervalued in our life story.

But this is it, The WEDNESDAY BEFORE Palm Sunday. I cannot procrastinate anymore, I must just write it all down.
