A Banquet for the Soul
If a day passes, does it leave a mark? If a year falls away, what do we gain from it? These questions strike a special chord with our own times, when the living of life has become a lost art. Over one hundred years ago the writer John Ruskin prophesied the decline of spirit and sensibility, calling his own generation "the age of brown," and in many ways our century has followed suit.
