as it meanders along the way

Presence Rising

Lake Superior | Lutsen, MN | 2012

“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

    I have not read much of Sigurd Olson’s writings, but this is an interesting quote. The part about beauty being fragile is often forgotten and not realized in time before our hands and fingers reach for something.
