"The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splits." G.K. Chesterton

My flatmate's dog Russell, came to greet me last night when I got back from a tutorial. After trotting giddily downstairs he paused politely at the threshold, looking up at me, until I said - hello there, come in! After I turned the TV on and sat down, he sat next to me. A minute or two later, while we were sitting there, watching the tube, he glanced over, and looked into my eyes - it was then, that I had a thought which put that moment in perspective - "so, my friend - here we are, two living beings sharing a moment in eternity."
