"We all have within us a center of stillness surrounded by silence. This house, dedicated to work and debate in the service of peace, should have one room dedicated to silence in the outward sense and stillness in the inner sense. It has been the aim to create in this small room a place where the doors may be open to the infinite lands of thought and prayer."  "There is an ancient saying that the sense of a vessel is not in its shell but in the void. So it is with this room. It is for those who come here to fill the void with what they find in their center of stillness."  -- Dag Hammarskjold. at the dedication of The Quiet Room at U.N. headquarters.

Many thanks to cathy_edgett.

We modern people keep insisting on putting the cart before the horse, but, fortunately, some still consider the horse.

Banned

A friend, with whom i had no apparent issues, has banned me from communication with him on LJ.
I am not so much hurt as confused.
