This quote reminds me why Frederick Buechner is on my list of all-time favourite writers. If you haven’t indulged, please click the text link on his name to dip your toe in his thought waters.
“Life is grace. Sleep is forgiveness. The night absolves. Darkness wipes the slate clean, not spotless to be sure, but clean enough for another day's chalking.” - Frederick Buechner, The Alphabet of Grace
