HILLS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate THE HILLS. They live for this time on a HILL. A Hill which looks out to sea and over the Valleys. They think about life from up where God can see everything.

There is a sacred HORROR about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills;
but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a
masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling.
– – -Victor Hugo

Up leaps the race of Earthmen,/Out, far, and onward yet–
–Robert A. Heinlein The Green Hills of Earth

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you
– Irish Blessing

Albert Schweitzer:

Joy, sorrow, tears, lamentation, laughter — to all these music gives voice, but in such a way that we are transported from the world of unrest to a world of peace, and see reality in a new way, as if we were sitting by a mountain lake and contemplating hills and woods and clouds in the tranquil and fathomless water.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
William Wordsworth

My old bones ache
my joints are stiff
An ant’s nest could bring down a hill. Japanese
