I've been reading quaker blogs lately, and finding that I'm intimidated (and often enlightened)
I wonder if that's how people's thoughts actually flow - one deep insight into the nature of G-d (or even a deep questions!) after another. No "white noise" - not even any personal pain or joy, per se.
I find myself to be quite self-centered lately. My own heart is such a complicated and sometimes foreboding place, I can't imagine venturing out farther into the world.
My friendships have been a trial to me lately (as they drop like flies around me)
