What nourishment do you need daily? There is, of course, food and drink. But other things feed us and with which we feed others: love, nature, beauty in art and music, challenges, inspiration, new ideas, engaging questions, and conversations. They provide meaning, satisfaction, and spiritual sustenance for us. We are careful about how much we experience them each day. They lose their flavor and power if we have too much at once. Living a good life means trusting that every day, we will have what we need to sustain us physically, intellectually, psychologically, and spiritually
