Skywatch Friday: The Courage to Live It

"If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it."  
John Irving

Making my way through A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving and read by actor Joe Barrett for the second time in a month, I heard Owen give this voice to John Wheelwright again.  As I listened, I thought, "That means waking up."  In every way.  The thought took my heart and mind back to my favorite place, and then I stepped into my other favorite place to start a day's work.  

Wishing you the best.

  7. Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
