Ode to Daphne

“I stand here on the summit of the mountain. I lift my head and I spread my arms. This, my body and spirit, this is the end of the quest. I wished to know the meaning of all things. I am the meaning. I wished to find a warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction. Neither am I the means to any end others may wish to accomplish. I am not a tool for their use. I am not a servant of their needs. I am not a sacrifice on their alters.”
Ayn Rand

    • Thank you Wendell. Ayn Rand was quite a woman indeed and although provocative, her words know how to cut to the depths. I thought about you this morning as my father sent me a poem I think you’ll enjoy as it is about God. I’ll send it along when he is finished. All is well and in love with Verona, which will indeed become my future home. 🙂
