Jim Mehl: A favorite poem

from “Auguries of Innocence”
by William Blake

To me this has always conveyed the essence of the Silicon Valley. It is not just the sand/silicon relationship, but also the sense of wonder and challenge that exists in the Valley.

fromAuguries of Innocence” 

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

William Blake
(1757-1827)
