Duty of Delight – Christine Valters Paintner

May 26, 2019

Perhaps this is life’s most exalted and exacting task,
holding the hard edges against the soft wonder,
or seeking the consolation of nature’s indifference.
 

  — Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, excerpted from “The Duty of Delight (After Dorothy Day and John Ruskin)” in Dreaming of Stones: Poems
