Ceremonies of Innocence

Giorgio de Chirico - The Enigma of the Hour (1911)
There is an unspeakable beauty, shimmering from just behind the thin veil of this world. 
Standing naked before it, all your failures and confusion are sanctified and re-christened as ceremonies of innocence. It is a moment of sublime astonishment. 

The most powerful words come from this state of utter wordlessness. Tremulous and iridescent, they pour forth from a radiant emptiness. Drink them in. They are the elixir of the unknown, and they unlock the adventure within you. There is no end to it.

-- Richard Power
