I frequently struggle both with trying to describe and (let's face it) trying to actually live as closely as possible to my heart and core principle, in a world that so frequently seems hard-wired against every single aspect of it.
Others, though, have a gift for describing this conflict. Joel at TUAK is one of them. He gets every bit of this ball here, and it's just one observation among many. (He might well consider himself an unlikely sage, but at some level that may in fact bolster the point.)
I'm happy to say I continue to learn from this man. Even when I don't agree, I still learn something useful.
