The light forgives, the distances forget

Mancala, 34.464429, -116.223896
"But the light forgives, the distances forget, and this great crystal of silence, whose base is as large as Europe and whose height, for all practical purposes, is infinite, can coexist with things of a far higher order of discrepancy than canned sentiment or vicarious sport. Jet planes, for example - the stillness is so massive that it can absorb even jet planes."
