O Me! O Life!

By Walt Whitman 1819–1892 Walt Whitman

Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

I rededicate myself to finding my purpose; to contributing my verse, whatever that might be; and to the sincere and honest pursuit of truth and friendship in my life from this moment on.

Panel 1

The Honest Pursuit of These Things

In her lawyering days, Tricia was described as a pitbull refusing to let go of a bone. She represented 6 New England states before the Supreme Court of the United States, sued the U.S. Navy for environmental damages in RI, sued the EPA, major power plants and the state landfill for clean air act violations. But that is how her career as an environmental lawyer defined her.  She is more than the suit of armor she wore for 17 years to protect the people and places she cared about. She is also a dreamer and a believer in magical moments. She wants the world to be a beautiful, forgiving, compassionate and loving place for all people. She will always be there fighting for the honest pursuit of these things: beauty, forgiveness, compassion, truth. She is also a mother, wife, sister, daughter, lawyer, writer, basketball coach and a serious chocolate addict.
