“we are all just small, sensitive people trying to get the best out of the time we have.”

I just returned home from a month-long field season in the Arctic. Early on, I met a remarkable man who said these wise and beautiful words to me.  In my mind, the word "people" became synonymous with "beings." 

 I have spent my whole life trying to shape a thought in my head and heart that both explains everything and allows everything. At last, someone spoke it into being.  I haven't words to express my gratitude.
