And men go about to wonder at the heights of the mountains, and the mighty waves of the sea, and the wide sweep of rivers, and the circuit of the ocean, and the revolution of the stars, but themselves they consider not.

St. Augustine

Maybe my passion is nothing special, but at least it’s mine.

Daily life

No matter what I read about these days, it ends up going off-world at some point.

Yes. Extraterrestrials.

I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then.

Lewis Carroll

For ten years I had been protected, wrapped up in something like a blanket that had been stitched together from all kinds of different things. But people never notice that warmth until after they’ve emerged. You don’t even notice that you’ve been inside until it’s too late for you ever to go back— that’s how perfect the temperature of that blanket is.

No wonder we all feel so tired these days…

Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.

Orion’s Belt

Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around us in awareness.

James Thurber 

We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming ‘sub-creator’ and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic ‘progress’ leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.

J.R.R. Tolkien
