OFTEN I AM PERMITTED TO RETURN TO A MEADOW as if it were a scene made-up by the mind, that is not mine, but is a made place, that is mine, it is so near to the heart, an eternal pasture folded in all thought so that there is a hall therein that is a made place, created by light wherefrom the shadows that are forms fall.
—Poet Robert Duncan

“Because learning does not consist only of knowing what we must or we can do, but also of knowing what we could do and perhaps should not do.
