Blurring the line between the sacred and the profane.

Common things, a flower, a gleam of moonlight, the song of a bird, not things rare and remote, are means with which the deeper levels of life are touched so that they spring up as desire and thought.

The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project.

—Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex

—William James, The Varieties of Religious Experience

It is man, alone among all objects in the world, who admits of an ideal of beauty, just as the humanity in his person, as an intelligence, is the only thing in the world that admits of the ideal of perfection.

—Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment

Our little lives get complicated
It`s a simple thing
Simple as a flower
And that`s a complicated thing

—Love and Rockets, “No New Tale to Tell”
