Two stops

The past week was the first I felt myself in too long awhile. The dogs are pleased the boys are back to school because they get a walk every morning, first thing. The stillness in those forty-five minutes every day begins everything for me.

The Orthodox theologian Pavel Florensky says what I mean:

Only the mysticism of the human center, which makes man accessible to grace and nourishes his core, corrects the personality and allows it to grow from measure to measure.
The Pillar and Ground of the Truth
