I've been having a great time reading A Circle of Quiet by Madeline L'Engle. I love the definition of
"Responsibility" - "To Respond."
Elegantly simple and magnificent.

She goes on to write, "There is a beautiful Talmudic story that when the Children of Israel reached the Red Sea, and Moses struck his staff on the shore, the waters of the sea did not part to let them through. The Israelites stood there at the edge of the water and nothing happened until one of the men plunged in.The the waters fell back.

This certainly flies in the face of our culture that makes a studied practice of showing a deplorable lack of curiosity about most everything.

Lots of thoughts brewing about this.  Yours?

great story about that Hebrew plunging in. I think life is that way.
