"It's not so bad to find yourself free of the effort to overcome your life. It's not so bad. I came to the garden just in time to enter the age of undoing. Surprisingly, it's the age where the most amazing transformations take place. Every single leaf drops every single year from a sycamore, and it is the end of nothing... I learned that all my faith lies in the path of least resistance -- in the humble power and aching grace of letting go." -- Karen Maezen Miller
