This may not be the end

Delight in the tiny new leaf, so shy and so shamelessly lush, unfurling from the crooked stem of the parched geranium.*
(Maria Popova)

Eternal beauty cannot glow here in its full force or purity; nevertheless it is present as a fugitive and awakens our adoration when it is glimpsed.**
(John O’Donohue)

Which did you see?

The ending?

Or the continuing?

Both were present.

The finite and the infinite.

The player makes the game.
