Dear Friends,

Who are some of the “muddy angels” (to use Dr. Estes’ phrase) in your life —- people who you wouldn’t say are exactly people you want to emulate, but people who nevertheless cause you to think about soul?  People who might inspire you by their bad examples, or by just one or two aspects of their character?  Who was/is outrageous, but makes you happier to be a human being?  Who would never be canonized as a “saint,” but still is someone who inspires you to let your soul shine? List them or image them or their influence in your life.

With love,
