Asea, asea, adrift on the wide expanse

13 November 1964
I'm a wanderer, currently asea. In fact, I live in in the land of the Chesapeake and work in the nation's capital; I'm in public affairs.


"There has to be clean water in the mind for the spirit to drink."

--Thomas Merton


I don't own a television.

This is a line from Nikos Kazantzakis's "Zorba the Greek:"

"The highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge, or Virtue, or Goodness, or Victory, but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!"

Now remember, you don't get that sense of "Sacred Awe" by watching the Lifetime channel.
