Words of Courage

The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed. 

The impeded stream is the one that sings.

—Wendell Berry in Collected Poems




 Are you in a place where you don’t know what to do or which way to go? Maybe even feeling a little baffled? What song do you hear about your real work? Your real journey?

This is the first of our monthly offering of Words of Courage. It is our hope that the words that you read and the questions you consider will en-courage you to engage fully in your work in the world.


These Words of Courage were contributed by Ann Faulkner, a CRNT Facilitator.

Dear Friends

Today on my lunch break, I took a walk through the neighborhood, enjoying the warmth, the sights, the sounds and the people. And as I walked I thought about the way I stay in contact with my family, my friends and you.  Yesterday, I used my phone and today, I used Twitter.  Yeah, in the blink of an eye, technology changed the way I stay connected.  

In today’s world, technology reigns supreme.  Using our PCs, laptops and i-Phones to access the e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and blog accounts to “update”  mom and dad, sisters and brothers, childhood friends and new friends on what is going on.  The good news, for those of us who are timid, is that it’s pretty easy once you get started.

Which is why I am so glad we have our blog at  All you and I have to do is post comments and enjoy reading others comments and responding (when you feel the urge).  What an easy way to stay connected.

In other words, blog with me!

Sincerely Yours in Blogging,

Images of Renewal. Words of Courage.


The roses would have been enough. 
Then the mockingbird came to sing his joy to Spring. 
We shared a sacred moment.

What has been a sacred moment for you in these days?
