Drawing Hands is a lithograph by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher (I added "Authority")

We feel the need to be in charge…

To Control

Not to be Controlled,

To Lead

Not to be Lead,

To Teach

Not to be Taught,

To Speak

Not to Listen,

To Rule

Not to be Ruled

To Tell

Not to be Told

We want Everything, but are unwilling to give Anything.

We want Wealth but we are unwilling to give Wealth.

We want Time but we are unwilling to give Time.

We want Authenticity but we are unwilling to be Authentic.,

We want Trust but we are unwilling to be Trust Worthy.

We want to be Loved but we are unwilling to give Love.

“To those who much has been given, much is required.”

    Keith, this really strikes a chord in me. It brings that verse to life and gives it so much perspective.

    Looking forward to having you here next weekend! Woot!
