the fountain of all light

i know people
places even
that pour goodness
and light
into this world
with no expectation
of return
or payment of any sort
they seem to know -
they just seem to know

like as the fountain
of all light created
doth pour out streams
of brightness undefined
through all the conduits
of transparent kind
that heaven and air
are both illuminated
the beams of being,
moving, life, sense, mind . . .

I know just such people, and you are one, my friend.

I don't know anyone who is more generous with goodness and light than you, Steven. I benefit from your radiance every single day.

Thank you!

Beautiful, Steven. Ditto what Tess said.

I had to Google Liguria to find that it was in Italy. I want to spend my winters there.
