Handwriting

_DSC5014“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting.” – R. W. Emerson

May His “handwriting” be abundant and obvious in your life on this most holy of days!

Solitude

SCPS-160218-015Solitude, silence, being in the woods, alone with ones thoughts.  Long shadows signal the end of another day well spent resting the body and recharging the spirit.

Life is Good!

Less is More

It has been wisely said, that which is less complicated is oftentimes better understood and more appreciated than complexity.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, one of the twentieth century’s most influential architects is credited with coining the much cited architectural axiom “Less is more.” In fact, this succinct and astute observation was first voiced by the young van der Rohe’s mentor, German architect and designer Peter Behrens.

Brevity in communication, be it verbal or visual, when thoughtfully articulated leads to clarity and a simple eloquence.

Winter.  A time of cold, and sometimes frigid temperatures.  Shortened days spent “hunkered down” with woolen socks on our feet, and warm drinks in our hands.  Also a time to slow down, relax, recharge and reflect upon goals achieved, opportunities missed, blessings received and bestowed.  In the words of that master of photography, Ansel Adams “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
