|a weekday evening--getting set up to grade some papers|
5-6 years ago, in conversation:
"What is the meaning of life?"
"To figure out what the meaning of life is."
Recently, in reflection:
"What is the purpose of our lives?"
"To heal our wounds."
Which is validated by this quotation:
"...healing the soul and healing the world. Ultimately there is no separation between them."
from "Integrity, Ecology, and Community: The Motion of Love" by Jennie M. Ratcliffe
