The miracle, magic & wonder of life & learning

The lesson which life repeats & constantly enforces is “look under foot.”  You are always nearer the divine & the true sources of your power than you think.  The lure of the distant & the difficult is deceptive.  The great opportunity is where you are.  Do not despise your own place & hour.  Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.     — John Burroughs
