If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. Henry Thoreau, Walden
In wildness is the preservation of the world. Henry Thoreau, Journal
How would it be? If we each really felt free to not conform? If we let ourselves understand that the God of the universe is a wild God, a God to be truly in awe of? What if we let people and things and our understanding of them be the way our crazily creative Creator God made them? He made zebras and koalas and hibiscus and redwoods…All praise to Him! And may we have the courage to believe and to live it out, minute by minute.
