"...I personally reach out to a bigger concept which I cannot define. I feel when I pray that my prayers do not vaporize in thin air. I feel a strengthening of my spirit.
Twilight diminished the rain this Sunday and the drought-sered grass was already greening. Mill Pond was pewter and one pale candle of light shone in the sky. And all at once I felt a presence, an everlasting support overwhelming death as I prayed."
