To come full circle.
One of my favorite books, back when I actually used to read is, Brothers Karamazov. I read this for a college literature class titled something like “Evil in Literature” - we studied theodicies, literature that wrangles with the “question” of “why a loving God would allow evil in the world...”
While hoping to find just the “right” thing say today, to lead into Gwen’s birthday tomorrow, while thinking just how to “present” my post to honor her birthday, I found myself full circle, back to Karamazov. In a random sort of fashion I stumbled upon something that is perfect. Here it is, word for word what I’ve come to know this year:
“He who desires to see the Living God face to face should seek him not in the empty firmament of his mind but in human Love.”
Dostoevski quotation from the Brothers Karamazov
I’ll leave that for there for now... Tomorrow I’ll put my full ramble. But that says it all. It’s both a observation of our life in the recent years as well as a challenge to me and to everyone I know.
It says it all. Gwenyth's life is about that.
Sweet Lillian, last year. So excited to be in Philly:
Sweet Lillian just the other day...so excited to be the one who gets to remember Gwenyth;
