Blaze of Glory


 
 
 
 
 
 
I saw in a vivid way how the whole universe was made up of particles of material which, no matter how dull and lifeless they might seem, were nevertheless filled with this intense and vital beauty. For a second or two the whole world appeared as a blaze of glory. . . . [i]t left me with something I have never forgotten and which constantly reminds me of the beauty locked up in every minute speck of material around us.
