On Aging

To live is to be slowly born – Antoine de St Exupery


The purpose of human experience is to grow us into God. It is so we can melt into God as we go – to expand. We are either expanding or collapsing at every moment…It is a process.  The soul grows in us.  I don’t have the same soul I had at 6.  Now [age 78] I’ve a soul that is thicker, deeper, warmer, lighter, wiser – Sister Joan Chittister, Benedictine nun (on SuperSoulSunday)

    This evolution, this revolving, this aging, this learning. You depict it with such joy in the photo’s you post. Thanks for the reminders to keep a sense of wonder and a sense of humor.

    1. That makes total Sense! She seems such a wise and gentle soul. I just discovered her on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday show. If you are interested you can catch it online via the Super Soul Sunday Facebook page.
