Growing up the most striking moment of the day was the early morning, at dawn. The fog starts to raise and the sun starts to shine. It is that exact moment that Michelangelo Buonarroti used to called "unfinished" It was the moment where everything is about to happen but yet isn't happening. Is the moment when creativity happens, inspiration finds its apex, love becomes clear and a human person can finally rest in the awareness that everything is a gift. I believe there is no other origin to the beginning of any venture in life than this exact moment.
They say beauty is fragile. Not when it is in your head, in heart and in your lips.
“I came here as a young man and dreamed of building a great university in honor of Our Lady. But I built it too small, and she had to burn it to the ground to make the point. So, tomorrow, as soon as the bricks cool, we will rebuild it, bigger and better than ever.” Fr. Sorin
