We live in such troubled uncertain times. I know I’ve been feeling variously distressed, heartbroken, and powerless.
And so I offer this post of beauty. I hope you can immerse yourself for a few moments in the beauty of nature, and that it can help, even just a little.
At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough.
Beauty reassures us that goodness is still real in the world, more real than harm, or scarcity, or evil.… Beauty is such a gentle grace……We often sigh in the presence of beauty as it begins to minister to us — a good, deep soul-sigh.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
