Catching A Glimmer

"We are all of us more mystics than we believe or choose to believe - life is complicated enough as it is, after all.  We have seen more than we let on, even to ourselves.  Through some moment of beauty or pain, some sudden turning of our lives, we catch glimmers at least of what the saints are blinded by; only then, unlike the saints, we tend to go on as though nothing has happened.  To go on as though something has happened, even though we are not sure what it was or just where we are supposed to go with it, is to enter the dimension of life that religion is a word for."
- Frederick Buechner
