Note to self

No one has ever laughed at a pun who did not see in the one word a twofold meaning. To materialists this world is opaque like a curtain; nothing can be seen through it. A mountain is just a mountain, a sunset just a sunset; but to poets, artists, and saints, the world is transparent like a window pane - it tells of something beyond....a mountain tells of the Power of God, the sunset of His Beauty, and the snowflake of His Purity. ~ Fulton J. Sheen

A photo that I took today at the Smith Oaks Rookery of an old window of an old broken down abandoned building near the entrance. Taken with my cell phone.

"The experience of colours proceeding from darkness and of music sounding through the fabric of silence, can be likened to the experience of words arising from the natural silence of meditation." ~ from the book "Silence, Music, Silent Music"
God has bestowed upon his people the gift of song. God dwells within each human person, in the place where music takes its source.

Indeed, God, the giver of song, is present whenever his people sing his praises.

Music arises out of silence and returns to silence. God is revealed both in the beauty of song and in the power of silence. ~ from "Sing to the Lord"

"Learn how to meditate on paper. Drawing and writing are forms of meditation. Learn how to contemplate works of art. Learn how to pray in the streets or in the country. Know how to meditate not only when you have a book in your hand but when you are waiting for a bus or riding in a train." ~ Thomas Merton
