What does it take to inspire us? Some will turn around, and suddenly see the world as if they had never seen it before, with new eyes, with heavensent vision. And then there are some of us who it would take the end of the world to open their jaded sight, if even that will shake them from their boredom with everything. It is a certain genius of the world, a rare light that hits even ordinary things from a whole new angle, and none may predict just what it is that will tip the mind into new paradigms. How sad that some of us will refuse to acknowledge that there is yet wonder in the world. Perhaps they, most of all, will be the ones reserved for a change of soul: I say, worry not, there are still surprises left for all of us. Suddenly you may look around, and all your senses will fire, as if you were a phoenix newly born again of the blaze, and all the future is laid out before you, when just a moment before, all you could see was dead end. And you find the courage, now, to take the first step in a journey of a thousand miles.
