Today I have something fun to tell you about, a blast from the past. A new and ambitious friend, Greta Holt, has started a blog about courage, but not the kind of courage that sends you parachuting off a plane or climbing Mount Everest, although I suppose it could. The courage she's writing about is "mostly the quiet kind," meaning the courage that can fill any ordinary day for her readers. As Greta puts it, this courage is "the listening, helping, working and thinking kind." Greta recently read my first book, Just Think: Nourish Your Mind to Feed Your Soul, and asked if she could include one of its section as a blog post. Of course I said yes. Please please click through to her blog, "Courage and Humility: Explorations" and read "Math, Wisdom, and White Sand" ("I was Younger Yesterday" was its original title in JT). While you're there, I hope you'll dig into some other posts in her brand new and very thoughtful blog.

Note: Starting next week, I'll be posting at my new website, where I've recently moved my Markings blog. Subscribers to this blog will receive posts as usual but from that site and through a new subscription provider. Given that I typically post only once a week, I no longer will have a "weekly" vs "as posted" option. Hopefully, all will be seamless to you the reader. Please let me know if you have any problems receiving posts. My thanks to Typepad for 14 years of service.
