It has always seemed to me....that, amid the common places of life, I was very near the kingdom of ideal beauty.  Between it and me hung only a thin veil.  I could never quite draw it aside, but sometimes a wind fluttered it and I caught a glimpse of the enchanting world beyond -- only a glimpse, but those glimpses have always made life worthwhile.
