"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

Let The Children Sing Without Fear

Two years earlier children and parents were bombed by radicals for attending this theater with play and song. But the people of this Pakistani city would not give in, and the children perform their play anyway.

"Though the bombers made headlines here two years ago, this night and these people are just as important a story....
When I leave, I come across an open drawing space covered with graffiti. Someone has scrawled two words: NO FEAR."
(Karima Bennoune. Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here)
