It is only in exceptional moods that we realize
how wonderful are the commonest experiences of life.
It seems to me sometimes that these experiences
have an “inner” side, as well as the outer side we normally perceive.
At such moments one suddenly sees everything with new eyes;
one feels on the brink of some great revelation.
It is as if we caught a glimpse of some incredibly beautiful world
that lies silently about us all the time.
I’d say that the the moments described are less exceptional than one might at first think.
