Presence Rising

“Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth… It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.”
~ Sigurd Olson

Fungus barnacles sprout new life for the fallen limb
As with all life there comes an end
Nature reminds us of the circle


Grace

ā€œNo spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.ā€
~ John Donne
