Winter






"I have spent my life watching, not to see beyond the world, merely to see, great mystery, what is plainly before my eyes. I think the concept of transcendence is based on a misreading of creation. With all respect to heaven, the scene of the miracle is here, among us. The eternal as an idea is much less preposterous than time, and this very fact should seize our attention."

oooh, I love the wintry landscape here at your blog. Such beautiful photos and I so agree with the quote.

I love to look out the window, or photo imagery, or movies, or anything that shows wintry winter white scenes--- but I DON'T like to be out in it... brrrrr

je veux être une fille d'hiver comme la fille dans la première image, fragile et mystérieuse.
