Excerpt: “We were blessed because several of our folks were artists, vocational, professional musicians. We learned the role of beauty…. [If] you’re involved in all this stuff if you’re confronting the messes of this world, don’t forget about delight, make sure you stay in some paces of beauty, because otherwise it’ll just wring us dry and all the rest.”
