    In October, the couple published “Dick Proenneke: Reflections on a Man in His Wilderness,” a compilation of essays written by (or drawn from interviews with) his friends and admirers. Proenneke would have turned last year; we are pleased to mark the anniversary by publishing some remembrances adapted from the book.   It has long been on my list to read at least one book by Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, and Dallas Willard.

    One Man's War (One Man's Island Book 2) Seven years ago, a star died in a distant part of the galaxy, sending its deadly gamma rays towards Earth. When the rays reached our planet, they killed virtually all of the human population overnight, leaving only a handful of survivors.   Shakespeare's Seven Ages of Man All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players, They have their exits and entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms. Then, the whining schoolboy with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school.

But the man who learns, in solitude and recollection, to be at peace with his own loneliness, and to prefer its reality to the illusion of merely natural companionship, comes to know the invisible companionship of God.

Just as no man is an island, in human terms, no island is really an island either. I like to stand on the spot where Tante Alfa did her washing.
