"When we approach life with an open and dedicated mind and heart, what do we experience?
We learn that we are striving for the same things - love, honesty, and justice.
We find these are actions, not wishes or longings. Freedom and joy are not care-free.
Escape from the burdens of life isn't freedom. Freedom is full of care for everything.
That means we must be a part of what all people want for themselves and for humanity.
The doors of the heart will then be thrown open to wind from every direction."
-A note from artist Jon J Muth of the picture book adaptation, Blowin' in the Wind
