"Encore" is a terrible word for the spirit

How often are we not confronted with a sense of frustration when we feel the plethora of brimming reality before us in an "existential moment", and yet cannot pierce it, cannot absorb it, cannot bring it to fruition in the midst of our being?

Yet beware: It is more futile still to attempt to capture it by means of recalling your past experiences of it. Every moment is new, and you will dissipate yourself if you attempt to encircle each moment with that which came before it.

"For we have sinned, and grown old and our Father is younger than we." - GK Chesterton.
