The mystical Greek philosopher
who lived and worked in 5th century Italy
could not have stated his wonder any more simply.
In English his entire statement is made up
of a vowel, a consonant, and an exclamation point.
My interpretation is this:
The universe is!
This solar system is!
Our earth is!
This life is!
This moment is!
When we are aware in our aliveness,
and alive in our awareness,
then each of these statements deserves,
even more, requires,
an exclamation point.
