God, You’ve Done It Again

August 11, 2011

Once, I was at a conference. It was on the Pacific coast. The dining room looked out over the ocean, and as we were eating, the sun began to set. As it disappeared more and more over the horizon, why, the conversation stopped. People just glued to that, and when the final little sliver vanished a three year-old kid started to applaud and the whole dining room picked up. I mean, God, you’ve done it again.

– Huston Smith, in Portrait of a Radical, a film by Four Seasons Productions.
