Chaos of Delight Episode 4

 

Charles Darwin wrote wonderful sentences, beautiful books and fabulous phrases and one of my favourite is when he describes his mind being a ‘Chaos of Delight’ after seeing many of the splendid lifeforms in a Brazilian forest.  And we have asked everyone who’s been involved in this App when they experience that ‘Chaos of Delight.’ – Robin Ince

It’s something that I treasure and try to experience as often as possible.

 

It is a wonderful phrase.  Certainly I had it when travelling on the Galápagos Archipelago as Darwin did.  I had it more recently this Christmas, Lalla [Ward, his wife] and I went to Antarctica to get away from it all, well, to get away from Christmas as well as the Northern Hemisphere, um, and that was the most magical experience.

I’ve had it when…on the rare occasions when one can get away from light pollution and look up at an unclouded night sky and see the Milky Way, with no moon, that is a chaos of delight.  Yes, it’s something that I treasure and try to experience as often as possible.
