QUOTE: It is the end of August, the end of summer. But it is not really the
end of a year, because a year is not really a circle. It is a segment
on a spiral that repeats the same pattern year after year, but never
quite identically, and never comes together in a final and hidden
meeting place as a circle would. The year is life itself, forever
changing, foreer leading on to something else. In each year we look for
cherished and familiar yearmarks, and in finding these, we discover the
necessity of the suffering the year exacts, the disciplien it imposes,
as well as the generosities it pours out to us. We do not know where
thecurving, spirled pattern leads, no in fact whether it leads up or down.
We know only that someplace on it there is an assignment for even the
least amount us, and that the fulfillment of that assignment is
important to the pattern and ennobling to the individual. ~ Rural Free:
