Like the mysteries of the soul, like the vastness of the universe, like the magic of happiness, like emotions, something too grand to explain in words. Even if you try to explain, somehow words fall short. That’s ineffable.
Sometimes, not so grand things can also confuse the mind and make us feel like we cannot explain. You feel, you know, you see, but you cannot express the depth of what you feel.
What words are there to tell how long a night can be?
– Paul Bowles
It still gives me hope to try. One must keep creating and pursuing the meaning of life through art. Art comes very close to something that can explain the unexplainable.
It would be so great to take photos or write words or create art that make the people seeing them feel ineffable emotions.
Let us think the unthinkable, do the undoable, let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.
– Douglas Adams
