brachot 54

X marks the spot
acknowledge the good and the bad
the places of miracles and tragedies
no chaos here, deserts and seas, all mapped, all noted,
even the sea monsters have their place in the order over the uncertainty.

(this page deals with saying blessings for bad as well as good, places of miracles & tragedies, individual and communal. all part of an order and not random chaos. reminiscent of ancient maps with 'here be sea monsters' in the corners. imposing order on the chaos and uncertainty of the world. for english translation of this talmud page see here)
