  1. Henri was such a good thinker! I’ve read one of his books and am in the middle of another. He is one of those who lived such a contemplative life–feels like they are a dying breed.

    • He’s wonderful, isn’t he? I adore the contemplatives, which is why I’ve always been attracted to his words. Modern life can certainly work to crowd out the contemplative view. Perhaps the contemplatives aren’t really a dying breed. Contemplation is, after all, deeply interior. Perhaps the fact that we don’t hear often from the contemplatives is that only the rare ones are outward enough to publish their musings. xox
