Tax Day in the US of A: 15Apr14
There are so many who have lived and gone on before, and so many yet still very much alive, with whom I would love to have a one hour conversation. I've long had a very private list of those souls.
If you could pick 50 living people, and 50 "gone before" people, who would be on your own list? What would be the priority by which you would write that excellent list? What wisdom would you want to glean from each of them?
Every once in awhile I get to check off a name from the "living list." Have not yet tried to connect with any on the other list... :-) ...but their writings do continue to inform my life.
From a fairly new "favorite app" call Red Letter Wake UP, a number of their posts have helped form my thinking for that day. It's well worth signing up for. This one had me wishing I could have had one of those one hour conversations with the likes of Thomas Merton. I have deep respect for his writings:
You can look to the left on my personal blog site (now getting reactivated after some attention to some health issues) for the listing of important books that are currently influencing my thinking. (How many books can one person read at a time? lol) Four of those excellent authors I've the deep privilege knowing. There's a bond with one whom I've counted as an extra special bro for years.
These are some of the sources and individuals who are being used to guide my steps into a future that continues to unfold in ways that are quietly stunning. I believe they could also help you live even more of your own life to the max!
