. . . do not mow the roadside flower

. . . And all the while, this town was changing me.  Making me question the whole idea of what success really is.  Gave me space to consider what sustainable success would look like –  what attainable felicity might be shaped like – not just for my children and for myself, not just for families just like mine, but for a town like this, one of many in a wide world I hope to someday see turned around right into a universal valley of peace and generous sufficiency. . . .
