~"For me a landscape does not exsist in it's
own right, since it's appearance changes at
every moment; but the surrounding
atmosphere brings it to life ~the light
and the air which vary continually. For me,
it is only the surrounding atmosphere which
gives subjects their true value.
~The leaves lay like hands upon the ground,
when the wind rustles them,
they applaud softly.
~Laura E. Stevens
~Nothing that is, can pause or stay;
the moon will wax, the moon will wane,
the mist and cloud will turn to rain,
the rain to mist and cloud again,
tomorrow be today.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
~"The sky and the strong wind have
moved the spirit inside me
till I am carried away
trembling with joy.
