You cannot grasp water in your hand
—it drops through your fingers.

You cannot grasp truth in your mind
—it drops through your thoughts.

You can only possess water by drinking it,
—and taking it into your body.

You can only possess truth by living it,
—and taking it into your heart.

Margot Blair sent it to me.
