The Problem with Epiphanies...

"And the experience of the Present- the "saying"- recedes instantly into the Past (the "said") precisely in that moment when one's mind realizes an epiphany is occurring and tries to seize the mystery by closing one's hand over it. The problem for the artist, but equally for any human seeker, is to allow that moment of suspension to remain open so that it may do its work."

From Wayne L. Roosa's essay, "A Meditation on the Joint and Its Holy Ornaments"
