“Theoretically, we know that the world turns, but in fact we do not notice it, the earth on which we walk does not seem to move and we live on in peace. This is how it is concerning Time in our lives. And to render its passing perceptible, novelists must... have their readers cross ten, twenty, thirty years in two minutes.”
—Marcel Proust (18711922)

“Tis the gift to be simple tis the gift to be free

And when we find ourselves in the place just right
Twill be in the valley of love and delight.”
