Welcome to Through the Common

To live content with small means;

to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion;

to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;

to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart;

to study hard;

to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never;

in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common – this is my symphony.

 William Henry Channing

This piece is a philosophy of life that I aspire to. It speaks to me in so many ways and inspires me to do better, be better. This blog will be about exploring these words in a real, meaningful, and practical way and I looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
