today i have two quotes in my head (and poems floating around and silly words that my daughter says)

"how can a man hope to promote peace in the world if he has not made it possible in his own life and his own household?" wendell berry


"we are just imperfect people trying to help heal a broken world" ethan hughes, co-founder of the possibility alliance. 

the more that i truly focus on what i give to my family and my community, the more i understand how these threads of connectivity are woven from whatever loom i choose to put my energy into. 

and i must, absolutely must, focus my energy into doing good.
