Suffusing Presence

Sunsets and sunrises are my most frequent experiences of Beauty whom I sometimes call God.  "Surrounding, gentle, suffusing presence" are words Carey Walsh uses to describe this kind of direct, all encompassing experience of God.  I'm going back through her valuable book Chasing Mystery.  She observes, "for the believer, an atheist is a pure curiosity, something like a fish who doesn't believe in water."
