A serious thought


The willful rejection of loveliness has often served as a metaphor for acedia, and I find it true to my own experience. It is all too easy for me to despise the pleasant lands, and choose alienation over connection because it promises to preserve my vaunted independence. Sometimes it is necessary to remind myself that I am not self-sufficient and never have been.
