I’m down to 19 days on this quest. Tick. Tick. Tick. There’s not enough time. I’m panicking, but I’m also relishing the deadline because I can’t avoid or ignore the Goodness Project now. I have to make this work.
Today, I’m also chafing under the burden of the too-careful review of John Bradshaw’s Reclaiming Virtue that I posted yesterday. I failed to convey the excitement I felt reading the book. Bradshaw’s work was like jumping into Lake Michigan where I used to swim as a kid. It was an awakening, a coming home and a chilling shock all at once. His acknowledgment of the role our emotional issues play in our ability to be virtuous, his careful program for tackling those issues, and his indictment of the rules-only, shame-the-child approach to morality ring true to me. Bradshaw may have given me the jolt I need to actually answer my question about goodness. We’ll see.
Tick. Tick. Tick.
19 days and counting.
