Delightful vistas and sweet relaxation can breed a tenuous nostalgia.

Have you not seen that in our days
Of any whose story, song or art
Delights us, our sincerest praise
Means, when all’s said, ‘You break my heart?
~ C.S. Lewis

It's a good to revel in the goodness of the gift of light!

Psalm 97:11-12 - "Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name."

“A man who has not been in Italy,
is always conscious of an inferiority,
from his not having seen what it is expected
a man should see.”
