Have I been reading too much news lately? Maybe. It's one of those times when politics are stirring and we're talking more about the direction our country is taking. I question and I hope, but I admit that sometimes I fear. Too much disappointment turns to apathy. If I had to diagnose an antidote for this loss of hope it would be to read Walt Whitman's Preface to Leaves of Grass. What a beautiful image of a vibrant, thriving nation forever on a path of discovery.
I'll try to keep it close for the next year or so.
