“The Fly at the Window”

But faith seems crucial; the ability to inhabit the breadth and depth of our compassion, to know, even in the dark center of our pain, that somewhere out of view there is joy and wonder; that even when we tumble we are part of a current larger than our own design. This is a hard bit of consciousness to ask for. Yet, even failing, faith…the life of concern…is possible.
