The Dag Hammarskjold letters part one








Dear Dag Hammarskjold,


When I walk to work in the morning I go through the University. I pass along something called "The Scholars' Walk" where great, honored scholars are memorialized. In the middle of it all is a sort of mini plaza that features a quote, etched lavishly in stone no less.

It's by you!

Well done.

It says “We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny, but what we put into it is ours.”

So I wanted you to know I have been totally packing the frame of my destiny with all kinds of stuff, just like you suggested. Unfortunately, no matter what I try I cannot seem to change the frame of my destiny. Surely this can't be right!

Is there some button I'm not seeing?

Any tips you can give on this would be super appreciated.



Regards,

Clerkmanifesto

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
