Henri Nouwen's 'Home Tonight'

I am still running, running from that knowledge
that eye, that love from which there is no refuge
for you meant only love, and love
and I felt only fear, and pain

from teaching a stone to talk by Annie Dillard, quoted in Home tonight by Henri Nouwen


  1. ahh! got really excited when I read the words "from teaching a stone to talk by Annie Dillard" and was about to scream for you to loan me the book.. and then I read the rest of the line.
    I love Annie Dillard!!
    but I would also love to visit (what? I meant borrow) that nouwen book when you're done. borrow so I can visit within its covers..

  2. Yay Jazzy - I love your comments
