To see a flower

No one sees a flower, really – it is so small – we haven’t time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”  ~Georgia O’Keefe

For the awakened eye no thing remains a mere thing. It reveals itself to be, instead of an object, an EVENT in the timeless abyss of time, an event of unfathomable meaning that happens to take place more or less simultaneously with the event I call ‘Me’.”  ~Frederick Franck

  1. what a beautiful blog! your journal sketches are amazing. i have always loved that georgia okeefe quote, too. i tried to subscribe to your blog in a reader, and wasn’t able to do it- is that function somehow blocked on your site? just a longshot that i will actually come back to a bookmarked page very often, so i thought i would mention it in case you didn’t actually intend to be un-followable. 🙂 have a beautiful day! (i think i made it here through a link you made to rachel’s blog 6512 and growing… so i knew you had very good taste. :))
