“We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting”

This Kahlil Gibran quote, and the slightly awkward rephrase that i am using for this blog, is in essence what i live for.

The world is a cynical place and this blog will be my personal antidote against that. I shall try and find beauty in the extraordinary and the mundane. I will be ready to recognise and appreciate it when it reveals itself in unexpected places. This beauty comes in many forms and sizes; not just the institutionalised beauty between the four walls of stuffy art museums, but also the kind that can be seen by anyone with their eyes and minds open. Especially that kind of beauty.

When i am happy, i am surrounded by beauty. It protects me like the arms of a mother, caresses me like a new lover and awes me through nature in all her force.

It may even challenge me and ask questions i do not want to hear.

I will let it fill me with light.

I will burn the daylight.

It will be like living life for free.

    • I would consider that a compliment. And if you could refer back to my post that would be even better 🙂
