Robert McAfee Brown writes,
I have found it true in my own life that certain moments capture the feeling of other moments; they show in one instant something I would like to be true of other instants as well. Other moments show me up as timid or fearful or indecisive, as I do not like to be but also am. They are important moments too, and must not be obliterated from memory. Sometimes we learn more from our failures than from our successes (Creative Dislocation: The Movement of Grace, 18).
Re-read this quote once more. Sit with it for a few moments. What images or memories or feelings does it bring up for you?
