A Spectacle Grander

A  L  O  H  A !
"There is one spectacle 
grander than the sea, 
that is the sky; there is 
one spectacle grander 
than the sky, that is
the interior of the soul. "
                     Victor Hugo

"The soul should always 
stand ajar, ready to 
welcome the 
ecstatic experience."
           Emily Dickinson

"All the great religions 
have a place for awe, 
for ecstatic transport
 at the wonder and 
beauty of creation."
        Richard Dawkins

“Forget the years, 
forget distinctions. 
Leap into the 
boundless and make 
it your home!”

Victor Hugo was an optimist. I can think of some souls which are meaner than the proverbial junkyard dog.
