Like a Strong Wind

by Michael Harank

One February morning in 1983, while I was sitting in my room at Haley House, the Boston Catholic Worker community in the South End, I heard a rather strong knock at my door. I said, "Come in," and Henri Nouwen blew into my room like a strong winter wind. He introduced himself to me with a firm handshake—a signature of his powerful strength—

"Like a Strong Wind" Wow! How graphic! It is FELT rather than SEEN.

Hummm..... I think I like that! Reminds me of SomeOne Else Who has been referred to as a "strong wind."......

Now, what about you and your Mentor, Mentee.

How would YOU describe the relationship you have with her/him?
