BEST of PONDER on THIS for Friday, April 13th, 2012 by Scott Russell Sanders in STAYING PUT

“Nothing less than the undivided universe can be our true home. Yet how can one speak or even thing about the whole of things? Language is of only modest help. Every sentence is a wispy net, capturing a few flecks of meaning. The sun shines without vocabulary. The salmon has no name for the urge that drives it upstream. The newborn groping for the nipple knows hunger long before it knows a single word. Even with an entire dictionary in one’s head, one eventually comes to the end of words. Then what? Then drink like the baby, swim like the salmon, burn like any brief star.”
