“Please join us in fondly and joyfully remembering his sharp wit, his quiet sense of purposes, and his wise perspective, gained both from looking back at Earth from the vantage of space and gazing across calm waters from the deck of his fishing boat

This fitting tribute for this peaceful explorer reminded me of the William Blake poem:

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

William Blake

“To See a World…” (Fragments from “Auguries of Innocence”
