Gracefulness

A gracious mind has compassion and sensitive understanding. It is without greed; rather than concentrating on what is absent or missing, it is able to celebrate and give thanks for what is present.*
(John O’Donohue)

To find the truth get your own heart to pound while you write.**
(Robert McKee)

Where our deepest gladness meets the world’s greatest need is a place of beauty and grace.

Whatever we do where our talents, passions and energies meet, may it set our heart pounding.

There is then a reason we notice the needs we do.
