Isn’t it here?

 “Are there physical places that simply must be seen before I stop breathing within time, before I inhale eternity? Why? To say that I’ve been arrested by wonder? Isn’t it here? Can’t I find it here?…

“Isn’t it here? The wonder? Why do I spend so much of my living hours struggling to see it? Do we truly stumble so blind that we must be affronted with blinding magnificence for our blurry soul-sight to recognize grandeur? The very same surging magnificence that cascades over our every day here.”
