"Gorgeous, amazing things come into our lives when we are paying attention: mangoes, grandnieces, Bach, ponds.....Astonishing material and revelation appear in our lives all the time. Let it be.... Unto us, so much is given. We just have to be open for business."
"In art we feel the breath of the invisible, of the eternal....In paintings, music, poetry, architecture, we feel the elusive energy that moves through us and the air and the ground all the time; that usually disperses and turns chaotic in our busy-ness and distractedness and moodiness. Artists channel it, corral it, make it visible to the rest of us. The best works of art are like semaphores of our experience, signaling what we didn't know was true but do now."
