More than those who watch for the morning---
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious.
CS Lewis, The Last Battle
I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation. ( Reflections on the Psalms)
…Can it be possible
That joy flows through and, when the course is run,
It leaves no change, no mark on us to tell
Its passing? And as poor as we’ve begun
We end the richest day? What we have won,
Can it all die like this?...Joy flickers on (Narrative Poems)
This blog is for anyone who acknowledges the dilemma of being human. I write and “cover” stuff I love because I know there is someone in this world who understands them (in all its beauty and horror).
