The Good Life

THEREFORE I STAND in this life, rejoicing in the sacred, at peace in grace, and sustained by faith. I bear witness not to myth, but to the work of humanity; I bear witness to the joy of this life, not the vanity of a next one; and I am comforted in the knowledge of the ages, fulfilled in the NOW, not placated by ancient invective. I rejoice in this life, this world, this bliss and will surrender neither my joy nor my reason to the hobgoblins of childhood. For I am now a woman, fully grown, and I have put away my childish things.
