Hello Paul - I don't previously recall seeing an Eric Severeid (so I guess your post is encouraging me to some additional rabbit hole searching 😃). 

Thank you for sharing these thoughts today and more importantly for sharing so many words that have made me think, wonder and ponder daily (or thereabouts) over the years.  I appreciate the care you take in choosing the quotes as well as the photos.  Merry Christmas!
