"Ask me whether what I have done is my life", from William Stafford's poem "Ask Me" -- these words remind the author of this book "of moments when it is clear -- if I have eyes to see, that the life I am living is not the same as the life that wants to live in me....And in the spirit of the poet, I wonder: What am I meant to do? Who am I meant to be?"
