I am afraid I shall disappoint people’s expectations dreadfully. ~ Jude Morgan
The experience of mystery comes not from expecting it but through yielding all your programs, because your programs are based on fear and desire. Drop them and the radiance comes. 
~ Joseph Campbell

"In fact — and this is the core of all my wisdom about love — whenever we try to explain why we have done any particular thing, whether it’s buying T-bills or why we wound up living in a house in the mountains or why we took the trip to Lake Ronkonkoma, or whatever it was, the only rationale that ever rings with honesty is: ‘It seemed like a good idea at the time.’ We’re really no smarter than cactus or wolverines or plankton; and the things we do, we always like to justify them, find logical reasons for them; and then you go to court later and the judge says, ‘Well, didn’t you know that is was doomed from the start?’ I’m waiting for someone to say to the judge, ‘Because, schmuck, I’m no smarter than you.’
 - Harlan Ellison, interview in Jon Winokur (ed.), A Curmudgeon’s Garden of Love (1989)

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

 Cello Music
“The night I walked by the water and heard cello I had not intended to photograph a reflection at all but I couldn’t resist the sound so I gave in and aimed my camera at what had elicited it. As soon as I let go of my thoughts, the texture of the water washed over me in synch with the sound and turned to satin on my skin. When I felt myself climb into the shadows between the folds, I snapped the shutter. I hear cello every time I look at it today, though I discovered that if I turn it upside down, it becomes violin.”
