An Epiphany


  • an appearance or manifestation, especially of a deity.
  • sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something.
  • initiated by some simple or commonplace occurrence or experience.

“I was six when I saw that everything was God, and my hair stood up, and all,” Teddy said.  “It was on a Sunday, I remember.  My sister was a tiny child then, and she was drinking her milk, and all of a sudden I saw that she was God and the milk was God.  I mean, all she was doing was pouring God into God, if you know what I mean.  ~J.D. Salinger
