Peace in a Field

Found my way outside today on a stroll through a calm and empty field. It is a perfect place to quiet my mind.

"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts."
-Henry David Thoreau

  1. I absolutely love that quote. I have been thinking of that lately, so it is so perfect. Your pictures are so beautiful too, as always.
