Marginalia 701

Alignment. It’s the thin ribbon of light that flows through a keyhole, or the signal on the radio dial that requires impeccable precision to find. It’s a small crack in the façade that you walk past every day but don’t notice because it’s as fine as a strand of hair. Then, in a single instant, a sliver of light spills through that crack and opens up like a peacock spreading its feathers, and the light you were once blind to becomes the light that illuminates your path. It has always been there waiting for you, for it was you who called it forth. So what do you do when that ribbon of light falls dead center across your soul? That, my brothers and sisters, is totally up to you!
