“To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.”—Simone Weil
I love this quote by Simone Weil and ruminate on it often in life. Most recently I saw it in action at a family funeral.
One of my nephews, Ted, spoke for the family at the memory service for his mother, my sister-in-law, who died young (67 years old) from Alzheimer complications after 10 long years of struggle. He asked his five siblings to send him a memory they wished to share.
