Happy Thanksgiving

I’m also appreciative today of language, and its capacity to communicate meaning, convey artistry and move me at times to sit down when my knees go weak for the hearing of some incredible passage. I’ll offer an example below, which is best enjoyed read aloud with a bottle of beer. 🙂

“The centuries are conspirators against the sanity and authority of the soul. Time and space are but physiological colors which the eye makes, but the soul is light; where it is, is day; where it was, is night; and history is an impertinence and an injury, if it be any thing more than a cheerful apologue or parable of my being and becoming. ” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
