From the ridiculous to the sublime, we can be moved on profound levels. Has that ever happened to you?  I have to admit that occasionally it has happened to me.

On one flip of the coin I read a piece of prose so profound and insightful I was momentarily dumbfounded as I grasped it’s  implications.  It was a thought so completely implausible yet possible, it stopped me in my tracks.

Conversely I read an article by a writer that was although earnest, clearly the scariest notion I’d ever read.  It too was completely stunningly profound in it’s ignorance and in my opinion shortsightedness, but still it effected me the same way.

From the ridiculous to the sublime

To new heights i have climbed

Occasionally stupified

By ignorance personified

A notion so radical

It seemed laughable

Nothing superficial mild or slight

That which fills us with deeper insight.
