what we must learn

"Ours is a culture based on excess, on overproduction; the result is a steady loss of sharpness in our sensory experience. All the conditions of modern life—its material plenitude, its sheer crowdedness—conjoin to dull our sensory faculties…What is important now is to recover our senses. We must learn to see more, to hear more, to feel more."

-Susan Sontag, Against Interpretation


If I was being honest, I would let you see how these last few months have exhausted us. How busy we have been. How I feel like a cup emptied of water but, somehow, not refilled. 

The truth is, I just can't spare the words to explain it all.

For now, I am treasuring up all these things, pondering them in my heart.

nota bene: Isaiah 41:10
