A layer of white covers my surroundings like a thin blanket; it transforms.
As I walked the property this morning, I had an amazing aesthetic experience. You must know what I am writing of, having had a similar experience when viewing a sunset, walking along the beach or seeing a baby's smile.
While walking, awe struck at the beauty around me, a memory came back to me of my first aesthetic experience. I remember that I was about 7 years old and I was just sitting on a fallen tree in the woods... my friends could not pull me away. They left and I stayed, just looking around. I must have stayed that way for nearly half an hour.
I wonder, in this fast paced, high tech world that we live in, how do we ensure that our youth stop and take the time to enjoy the aesthetics that life and nature have to offer?
Here are a few of my photos from today...
