“Do not all charms fly
At the mere touch of cold philosophy?
There was an awful rainbow once in heaven:
We know her woof, her texture; she is given
In the dull catalogue of common things.
Philosophy will clip an angel’s wings,
Conquer all mysteries by rule and line,
Empty the haunted air, and gnomed mine
Unweave a rainbow”
– John Keats

Enchantment--by elisabeth connelley

    • I find it so astounding when I notice that a person doesn’t have a concept of being enchanted, in anything. I hear that same ‘argument’ that your friend gave in the post this morning and I think of the number of people that have had the grace of noticing every tiny piece of God’s beautiful energy, even through concentration camp-like conditions. I wonder that in the depths of the worst of the worst, I had access to that gift, and how horrid it must be for others not to ever recall having experienced it. Or, to feel that they must give up one pleasant thing, in order to keep gritting the teeth. Life on life’s terms holds allll things. 🙂
