Thin Layer of Stone

the world is charged with the grandeur of God

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
--E.B. Browning

While all ground is holy, some feels holy even to the distracted, such as I was one week ago when I visited Pipestone National Monument.

In discussing the feeling of Pipestone with my sister (who also took this picture), we decided that because the site was made public, it has lost some of its sacredness. What remains, though, is palpable.
