Across the centuries, hermits and creative folk have often entrusted their livelihoods to fate or faith — relying upon some version of the principle of Dominus providebit: the eternal ineffable power will find ways to sustain those who place their honest trust in its providence.

In modern times, especially here in the West, this approach can seem quite foolhardy and misguided. Yet many admirable people today are following such a simple, time-honored, and “risky” path with fascinating results. (See the Contemplations page for some thought-provoking examples.)
