The Alphabet

The invisible manifests itself in the visible. I think of the alphabet, of letters literally -- A, B, C, D, E, F, G, all twenty-six of them. I think of how poetry, history, the wisdom of the sages and the holiness of the saints, all of this invisible comes down to us dressed out in their visible, alphabetic garb.
