The Desert Foundation--great name you
May you be blessed in this new endeavor.
It takes strength and trust to make such
a bold move.
What a surprise! But you’ve always
been full of surprises. Looking forward
to hearing more about the Desert Foundation.
The site is beautiful and reflects your
wise and loving hearts.
The web site is wonderful! I love the
contrast of the Sand Dunes and the bounty
of the farmer’s market--just like
life. JudyMaselli’s piece felt like
home! Congratulations on all the great
progress--moving in, putting down roots,
reaching out – thriving like the
cedars growing out of rocks in Sedona or
those sand dune sunflowers. God blesses
I think your web site is captivating.
The colors and quotes are spare without
being arid. The photos, especially of your
[Fire and Light] students, have depth and
vivacity. I liked the evocations of Thomas
Merton, whose WISDOM OF THE DESERT I read
many years ago, when being a college president
was too much with me, and patristic solitudes,
with great distances in time, seemed purifying
and comforting. I like the elder quoted
by Merton to a brother: “Whatever
you see your soul to desire according to
God, do that thing, and you shall keep
your heart safe.” The key words,
I imagine, are “according to God.”
One could take that quote with undifferentiated
and undiluted stress on the soul’s
desire which accent is not merely lopsided
but dangerous and imperiling to the individual
