Regarding the Sublime

I recently discovered a Radiolab blog that instantly reminded me of our reading and class discussion regarding the sublime.  Although this blog post never uses the term “sublime,” it discusses and ponders natural events that cause “human awe.”  The video and poem featured here capture moments in nature that inspire passion and indescribable awe; they are encounters with the sublime. Enjoy!
