WE HAVE ONLY THIS MOMENT
I am deeply honored to be included in the Summer 2018 issue of the astonishingly wonderful quarterly magazine Parabola: The Search for Meaning. The current issue also includes poems, meditations, and articles by Thich Nhat Hahn, C.S. Lewis, Jeanne de Salzmann, Ramana Maharshi, and Jane Yolen. My article, "The Circle," tells the story of walking the beach with my husband and stumbling across a huge piece of driftwood that taught me a profound life lesson about everyday miracles. (The article is included below.) As Parabola's editorial director Tracy Cochran writes in her introduction to the Summer issue's focus on the miraculous: "It is by leaving the known, the well-traveled road, the deep grooves of habit, that we find our true path. And on that path, we may glimpse and sense that our true life does indeed share in the miraculous."
