"The universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine."  


- Sir Arthur Eddington

When I retired to the woods of South Carolina I wanted to experience a passion similar to those who built Stonehenge - strong enough to inspire me to move mega-ton boulders halfway across England. That is to say, I retired with an agenda. “Okay God, it’s you and me. No structures No restrictions. No theology. No holds barred. Twenty-four hours a day. You are my only passion. You say you like a challenge? Bring it on!” Like Jacob of old who wrestled with God, I had one prayer on my lips: “I will not let you go until you bless me!”


Imagine my surprise when, in a totally unexpected way, God answered and did just that!

"Life is a quest, especially as you mature and begin to contemplate its mysteries. The temptation is to think only in terms of how much farther, how many more miles.  But sometimes, if you're lucky or work hard at it, insight breaks through.  You stop, if just for a moment, and see, really see, what surrounds you.  During such moments of clarity, you know why you're alive.  You know who and where you are in space and time.  You can't explain it, but you understand it.  And if you meet someone else who has had such an experience, all you can do is look at each other, nod, smile, and say, "Yes!"
