At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. “At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.” -- Norman Maclean, “Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.” -- Norman Maclean, “As I get considerably beyond the biblical allotment of three score years and ten, I feel with increasing intensity that I can express my gratitude for still being around on the oxygen-side of the earth's crust only by not standing pat on what I have hitherto known and loved. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us.

For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us.
