What is art? Nature concentrated. ~ Honore de Balzac
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~ e.e. cummings
As I walked past this pile of leaves on the way off of campus today I was reminded, once again, of the great beauty of nature. I find that nature – plants, flowers, animals, is often the most amazing display of beauty in the world. I LOVE learning about plants and animals that are rare, but amazingly beautiful – and I love having the opportunity to teach our students about them in the classrooms. Nature is a wonderful inspiration for art!
Today, 107 days ’til 40, I stand back in awe at the beauty of nature that surrounds me!
