A Beginning...

This blog has been around for quite a while now, and I haven't written anything; perhaps it's time for that to change!

I will post thoughts on books read, movies watched, and frequent quotes - as an avid reader of good books those aren't too hard to find - and other miscellanies.  But I'm still figuring out how to make best use of this space on the internet.  =)

So, to begin with:

"The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings."

God’s Grandeur, Gerard Manley Hopkins
