Being More Than Being Useful

Lovely article https://onbeing.org/blog/parker-palmer-being-more-than-being-useful/

“And you—what of your rushed
and useful life? Imagine setting it all down—
papers, plans, appointments, everything—
leaving only a note: “Gone
to the fields to be lovely. Be back
when I’m through blooming.”
