“Earth’s crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God;
 And only he who sees takes off his shoes – the rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning, from “Aurora Leigh.”

 “I have been able to see my life as from a great altitude, as a sort of landscape, and with a deepening sense of the connection of all its parts…I feel intensely alive…I feel a sudden clear focus… There is no time for anything inessential…”
Oliver Sacks, “On Learning He Has Terminal Cancer.” New York Times

Psalm 45:1           “My heart is [stirred by] a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touchingthe king…Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips:  therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.”

1 Samuel 2:30        “Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”
