I think there is is no way we can live and
"not cause difficulties for others," as the saying exhorts us. I have
come to think that even when we are overflowing with love and goodness,
the world of human beings is one in which we cast our shadows onto each
other, giving each other troubles as we grow and live.
The question then becomes, what it is hope? And the conclusion I'd
have to venture is that hope involves working and struggling along with
people who are important to you. In fact, I've gotten to the point where
I think this is what it means to be alive.
