Do you see it.....

I saw an old man Kneeling over a channel and watching the water run,
his face bathed in inexpressible ecstasy.

What do you see there, old man?’ I asked him.

And without lifting his head, or removing his eyes from the water, replied,
My life, my life which is running out…”

(Nikos kazantzakis, Report to Grecco, Ch.17, Pilgrimage through Greece)
