RE: the end, on recognizing the Divine in creation...Waes thu hael/wassail. I learned a chant that sings of that; it goes like this:O Great SpiritEarth, Sun, Sky and SeaYou are insideAnd all around meI wish I could sing it for you, but I don't have any audio equipment.
Oh, that's a wonderful chant - the four elements...I wish you could sing it here too. (Soon, I imagine, such equipment will just be standard!)
