Interlude, with heavens

This heaven has no other where than this:
the mind of God, in which are kindled both
the love that turns it and the force it rains.

As in a circle, light and love enclose it,
as it surrounds the rest and that enclosing,
only He who encloses understands.

No other heaven measures this sphere's motion,
but it serves as the measure for the rest,
even as half and fifth determine ten

- Dante, Paradiso, Canto XXVII
We're surrounded by miracles, if we stop to look.

One of mankind's greatest tragedies is that it fails to consider the majesty everywhere around it.
