index“The gifts we are given are not simply, and perhaps not primarily, for ourselves. They are simply not for our personal selves. The gifts are for our larger self, for the role we have in the larger community of things. That, to my mind, is the reason for the gifts we are given. That is why nature diversifies.ā€
