"An idea no longer shrouded in mist, through wave or ether comes to me, like a star from high up in the skies, or a pearl from the bottom of the sea." - Victor Hugo (Les rayons et les ombres)
Fascinating idea of having being created from stardust (especially fascinating that my right hand is from other stardust than my left, explains a lot :-), but though it is true that the universe writes the more important or impressing stories - and that it is important to leave one's room and check - I am glad that there are poets and novelists, who bring a bit of starshine into our ordinary life.
Agreed. And musicians too. The sounds of the universe silently waiting in strings. I sense the enthusiasm of certain scientists is also a poetry. Carl Sagan and Patrick Moore are a couple that spring to mind.
"The sounds of the universe silently waiting in strings." - poetry!
:) thanksmy pedometer calls! 5,000 steps before the sun sets
Fascinating. So true and such a philosophy. Something to ponder on as you do those 5000 steps.
My 5000 steps made me consider the religious theory that you can't look at the face of God. I concluded that it originated with pre- stone age people going blind looking directly at the sun, the first 'known' God to be 'worshiped'.
Now we know better and so we are 'only' metaphorically blind.
And continue to remain so Gwil.
