Glimpse of Essence

“I love the word essence. It has mystery, heart and luminosity. It reminds me of the way a cloud can open over a dark  Conamara lake and turn it into a shimmering mirror of silver brightness, for a few moments the lake illuminates. The essence of a thing is always elusive and hidden. The dream of art and prayer is to come nearer, even to slip through to dwell for a while in the vicinity of the essence.”

John O’Donohue
