the called, solitary flight..of the way, the truth, the life


…can perhaps be caught and held in a picture….

like a photograph of a bird in flight… Such is the solitary vocation. For, of all…. the solitary knows least where they are going, and yet more sure, for there is one thing they cannot doubt: they travel where God is leading them. That is precisely why the solitary doesn’t know the way. And that too is why, to most others, the way is something of a scandal. (Thomas Merton)
