But Notice

A  L  O  H  A !
 Same Petals as Yesterday's Abstract

“If you take a flower 
in your hand and 
really look at it,
 it's your world 
for a moment.” 
                            Georgia O'Keeffe











" Life is full of beauty. 
Notice it. Notice the 
bumble bee, the small child, 
and the smiling faces. 
Smell the rain, and 
feel the wind. Live 
your life to the fullest 
potential, and fight 
for your dreams."
                                 Ashley Smith











Morning Marin Wetlands

“My temple is the swamp… 
When I would recreate myself, 
I seek the darkest wood, 
the thickest and most ...
impenetrable  dismal, swamp. 
I enter a swamp as a sacred place, 
a sanctum sanctorum… 
I seemed to have reached 
a new world, so wild a place…
far away from human society. 
What’s the need of visiting 
far-off mountains and bogs, if 
a half-hour’s walk will carry me
into such wildness and novelty.” 
                                     Thoreau
