― Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
New Seeds remains a favourite book. Don't ask me now how I came to read it -- I think it was indirectly via bobby1933 -- but whenever I feel I need to get back to reality, i.e. something much bigger than the usual 'Get Better' narrative, I always find myself plugging back into the audio and listening to a few chapters.
Bless you Thomas Merton. Bless you.
