"What can be more soul shaking than peering through a hundred inch telescope at a distant galaxy, holding a hundred million year old fossil or a five hundred thousand year old stone tool in one's hand, standing before the immense chasm of space and time that is the Grand Canyon, or listening to a scientist who gazed upon the face of universe's creation and did not blink?
That is deep and sacred science."  
- Micheal Schermer

absolutely beautiful quote!

and have a look at this picture below:

Father of my land lady was an artist, so the whole house is full of paintings, sketches and empty wooden frames. This one is my personal favorite, feels like sitting in a small town European cafe, sound of a distant church bell falling into ears, looking at small passageway between the walls of houses painted with warm colors. Simply wonderful!

Every week or two the tiny flowerpot on a dining table gets new flowers. This time it were those cute yellow flowers (dont really know the name, ive always been lousy at remembering English names of different flowers!). The whole frame with thick layers of paint, light yellow wall in the background and bright yellow flowers contrasting it, what else one's eyes may need to feel delighted.

I used to think, what for waste money on flowers! That was utterly distasteful of me!
