Earth’s crammed with heaven

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries…
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

… Put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
Exodus 3:5, Bible, King James translation

Paradise is where I am. 
Francois Voltaire, Le Mondain

It’s a magical world, Hobbes, Ol’ Buddy…let’s go exploring!
