lao tsu

My sweet friend Gretchen wrote to me the other day:

“There's a little park not too far from our house, up high on a hillside overlooking Blakely harbor through the firs. I pass it sometimes when I run. It has a bell inside a beautiful, turning sculpture that rings when you've turned the sculpture nine times. There is a quote from Lao Tsu on it: 

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.

When I read your blog, I hear these treasures over and over in your writing. May the treasure you give others be returned to you tenfold.”

All I can say is that it has been, from Calvin and from all of you that I love.
