The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Postcards From Hollister # 6

The immensity and torrent of the world, in a tiny inch of water.

-Paul C├ęzanne

Sometimes it pays to look down at your feet instead of always looking toward the high mountains. We can look far and wide for what we were looking for, until we realize that it was back where we started from. We dream, and dream big, but then we often mistake what we think might fulfill those dreams with what will really fulfill them. Sometimes happinesss was there all along for the taking. We just weren't paying attention.

It's not about not dreaming. It's about learning to dream well. And sometimes dreaming well means dreaming small. Very, very small.

I'm really enjoying these "postcards," Arturo. I love the photo on this one. Ah, the Middle California countryside. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Where was this one taken? Reminds me of the countryside down near the east side of Pinnacles.

I think this is by the Pacheco Pass, but the scene is very common around San Benito County in March and April.
