Some of you may appreciate my latest essay at Image‘s Good Letters blog. An excerpt:

“. . . I offered him my experience: we accumulate suffering as we grow older, so that the things which once brought us happiness no longer ameliorate the pain. Those things that give us gladness, however, give us even greater joy in the midst of our suffering.”

    You are a gift, Tony.
    I can’t tell you how many times you’ve moved me to tears, to deep reflection, and to actual change.
    This essay is beautiful.

    Tony, I just read your post on the lowest rung of the icon– stunning. Thank you. It seems some of the commenters were picking fights, or trying to “solve” you, and I didn’t want to get into that. Well done.

    JIm, you are very kind to say so. I appreciate your reading.

    Denise, you are wise to avoid trying to solve me. Too many have dashed themselves on those rocks. And thank you for your kind words, really.
