You are more marvelous

For those mornings when you wake up questioning everything -- a tender and heartening message from David Whyte, from the poem "Santiago" in his new book, Pilgrim:

"Every step along the way, 
you had carried
the heart and the mind 
and the promise, that first set you off 
and then drew you on --
that you were more marvelous 
in your simple wish to find a way
than the gilded roofs 
of any destination you could reach... "
