Amongst lovely things we live and become. Memories are tinged with vivid colors – rosy, shattering, and pulsating – depending on that which we need to recall. Lives are lived in between the shades of that infinite spectrum. We skip amongst the blinding and silky shadows gathering glee, and anguish, and everything we carry with us in the deepest recesses of a heart. The most we can hope for is that you were taught the difference between looking and viewing. You ask, what if I am blinded? Oh, but my dolcezza, what if you see? If you are not afraid to gaze, to actually behold, your eyes will see that beauty is never stagnant. It swoops, and flutters, and alights in a continuous performance of that great and terrible emotion that we will never be able to describe. Whole landscapes will tumble in front of you, and a formidable splendor will roll in waves at your feet. [Kathleen McCampbell]
