Joe Henry on Krista Tippett’s On Being podcast:

…I think that anybody who is devoted to a creative life, but not only, any of us who is alive- we’re really called not to dispel mystery, but to abide it, to engage it. And that doesn’t mean necessarily making sense out of it. It’s understanding that there’s a big part of us that is inherently and beautifully and romantically mysterious, has to be and always shall be. I write to discover. and if I’m engaged by what that writing has become then I try to think about might that engage anybody else. It’s to put my finger on it and hear it.”

It’s about being present and open to the mystery that is around us and within us.
