An unknown world aspires toward reflection. Words are the oblique mirrors that hold your thoughts. You gaze into these word-mirrors and catch glimpses of meaning, belonging, and shelter. Behind their bright surfaces is the dark and the silence. Words are like the god Janus, they face outward and inward at once.
—John O’Donohue, Anam Ċara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom (Cliff Street Books, 1997).
Thank you, apoetreflects.
