|I do love scribbly gums... Seemed a nice way to make an image of my "list"|
Some of my wonderful blogging friends added their thoughts to the previous post, and ideas included intuitions of "something more", of connectedness to something greater, and ideals beyond physically tangible reality. I can relate very much to all of those. Here is my little list of the kinds of things in my own life that have seemed to touch on something "deeper":
- Profound family moments... the birth of a baby is one example that is clear in my mind. After my daughter, Hannah, was born I remember watching her asleep and feeling absolutely awed by both the presence, and the profound significance of this tiny person. A whole personality, a whole life, a whole impact on the world around her yet to come...
There's also just "something" about knowing someone closely enough to really glimpse the infinity within them - & I guess family, and those friends who are family too, is where that happens best.
