  1. Reading this was a labor of love… complex, chock full of amazing wisdom… wow…and I do leave it feeling transformed, as he suggested. Now to print and keep it. Thank you for this. It clears some things up in my mind about my scholarly endeavors and my thought life…. as regards schoolwork: “The rhythm of work in progress seems tentative and peaceful. But on the occasion of each of these pointless classes, it becomes asceticism, impatience, and fear… and as regards stretching in other mentally gymnastic ways, “What is behind you isn’t more certain than what you are facing; in fact, it’s more uncertain. To go beyond is an idea that makes you smile.” I really love this.
