Thinking of my college mentor Jim Carlson who passed away this past weekend after 94 years on planet Earth. I am most thankful that he appeared in my life at the perfect right moment and initiated me and so many into the world of theatre dance art creation and the sacred. As a Quaker he demonstrated that the love of Christ isn’t just words.
“Pippin: I didn’t think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path… One that we all must take. The grey rain curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it.
Pippin: What, Gandalf? See what?
Gandalf: White shores… And beyond. A far green country, under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: Well… That isn’t so bad.
Gandalf: No. No, it isn’t.”
Farewell to a fabulous human being.
“For someone like me, it is a very strange habit to write in a diary. Not only that I have never written before, but it strikes me that later neither I, nor anyone else, will care for the outpouring of a thirteen year old schoolgirl.”
