Here the practical man will naturally say: And pray how am I going to do this? How shall I detach myself from the artificial world to which I am accustomed? Where is the brake that shall stop the wheel of my image-making mind?

Robert said,

I remember getting up late one night and going into the front room. there looking out over the cliff down to the sea the perfect full moon in a cloudless sky cast a moon path from the western horizon across the sea to me. The waves moved across the ocean in a slow dance that seemed to accent the light of the moon. For one moment I felt that I knew what life was about.

Mike says,

So that's what gets you up at night!

It's a sight that we see only in National Geographic here in the east.
