"aesthetic beauty is as much about how and whether you look - as what you see, from Cork to the supernova the wonders do not seise It is our attentiveness that is in short supply " " It is the lack of capacity, and willingness to do the work that awe requires. " However - I’m quite fond of our capacity for awe. I’d give it 4 stars

This was such a beautiful podcast on the capacity of human for wonder and beauty. In a mere twenty minutes, it covers why the Great Gatsby is loved and scorned as an American classic, why the sun is essential for life yet we turn away from it, the beauty of something as vast as sunsets and something as small as the veins of a leaf, the belly of a dog inviting us to its vulnerability, and so much more that's beautiful, but don't stop to think about enough. Plus, John Green's voice is so meditative.
