Greater Mystery


I have been looking at the prayer flags in the photos below and have decided the ones that were caught on the bush were NOT the ones I put on the cairn. The color arrangement is different.

Where did they come from? I don't know. I went back yesterday afternoon and they were gone. Flags flying around the world? I once found a set of smaller Tibetan prayer flags on the sidewalk immediately outside my NYC apartment building when I went out about 7:00 in the morning. At that time the Dalai Lama was in the city so I assumed they had been displayed somewhere, wafted away and landed where I found them that morning. Was it Shakespeare who wrote, "there are more thing in heaven and earth than ..." whatever -- will have to look that up and see what the context was, somehow it sounds like Midsummer Nights Dream.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.


Hamlet Act 1, scene 5

Thank you, Helen. My first impulse was to say, "Hamlet" but I mistrusted myself -- the old advice about exam taking was always to go with your first impulse. Still true.
