That’s it–and enough. I recently read it as rendered, but can’t remember where. No matter, he said it, and absolutely meant it! 🙂
For verification, here’s a few of today’s reds and vermillions–for today, for joy as summer wanes, and for remembering when Fall falls. Only one of these images is Ruskin’s–his study of wild roses–and he would immediately say that it is, at best, a rank imitation!
The cliche, of course, is that we should take time to stop and smell the (wild) roses. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to stop and have a good look at them too. Mr. Ruskin did. So did Georgia O’Keeffe.
Until next time!
Find joy out there, it’s just waiting for our glance.
