“Ultimately you understand…”

Ultimately you understand there is order in the universe, even if there is no order in your immediate circumstances.

Jane Siberry

in an interview in The Ottawa Citizen, 8/23/95
as quoted in “Someplace To Be Flying” by Charles de Lint

After all, order is all around us. Our bodies would not exist without it. And yet, all that we seem to see is chaos. All we seem to make are things to distract ourselves from the disonence we hear around us.

But all you have to do is stop and look at the lines on the palm of your hand, swriling and dancing together. Or a flock of birds in flight. Or millions of other things around you every moment of every day. In fact, even the time we measure our lives by is order.

We just need to know how to see it.
