Michelangelo said about carving in stone - just carve away the part that isn't David . . . and although we may not all have a David in our stone . . . we do have a wonderful promise within each new piece . . . and an incredible desire to find it. That is the easy part . . . the desire that drives a stone carver on . . . breathing dust, chipping away . . . continuing through aching back and the knowledge that the sun is setting . . .
The hard part is the rest.
