“To meditative minds the ineffable is cryptic, inarticulate: dots, marks of secret meaning, scattered hints, to be gathered, deciphered and formed into evidence; while in moments of insight the ineffable is a metaphor in a forgotten mother tongue.” — Abraham Joshua Heschel, I Asked For Wonder
So much to be said,
for metaphors mixed and lost–
Eden, true to form.
