the fact and the mystery…

The horizon is a marriage of reality and dream. Seagulls know this as they merge with the sun. Looking down at the clouds, man accepts that he can and cannot fly. A baby is alive and unharmed in a tree after a tornado. A firefighter walks into a raging blaze and back out. We are free to be the fact and the mystery of life at any moment. Within each of us, there is a blue horizon.
