Through A Window by Jane Goodall


There are many windows through

which we can look out into the

world, searching for meaning …

… Most of us, when we ponder on the

meaning of our existence,

peer through but one of these

windows onto the world.

And even that one is often misted over

by the breath of our finite humanity.

We clear a tiny peephole and stare through.

No wonder we are confused by the

tiny fraction of a whole that we see.

It is, after all, like trying to

comprehend the panorama of the

desert or the sea through

a rolled-up newspaper.

~ Dr. Jane Goodall
