At the end of each day, the First Creator looked at His work and said, “It is good.”
Then He delegated the task of completing the creation to one of His creations, which He had made in His own image.
They didn’t live by His creative standards, preferring to focus on one petty detail of the project – the only one He told them to avoid, so He had to adapt their role to their diminished capacities and to their new problems.
And yet – He still holds out the promise of a well done to those who are willing to work with Him.
That is why Keats could say, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty. That is all you know on earth – and all you need to know.”
