The Soul Loves Beauty

“Color is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment.” 

~ Claude Monet

Today I woke up, craving colour, light.  This craving seemed to come directly out of my be-wintered dreams.  I adore our winter grey days, but there are times when light becomes necessary.  Have you read John O'Donohue's book, Beauty?  The more I read it, the more I love this gentle book.  In it he says,

"Colour is the language of light; it adorns the earth with beauty. Through colour light brings its passion, kindness, and imagination to all things..."

"Light is the greatest unnoticed force of transfiguration in the world: it literally alters everything it touches and through colour dresses nature to delight, befriend, inspire and shelter us. The miracle of colour is a testament to the diverse, precise and ever surprising beauty of the primal imagination."

So even though I've taken many photos that are something of a permutation of these ones, I took these today because they made me remember that transfiguration.

"We are creatures fashioned to behold colour because the soul loves beauty."

~ John O'Donohue
