MYSTERY NOT MASTERY


-Sunrise on the farms last July-E.B.

A person should hear a little music,
read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day
of their life, in order that worldly care may not
obliterate the sense of the beautiful
implanted in the human soul.
Johann Wolfgang Goethe

-Ogden Canyon sunset-E.B.

Feed the well of creativity with sensory experiences--
sight, sound, smell, taste, touch.  These are the
elements of magic, and magic is the
elemental stuff of art.
Think mystery not mastery.
(Julia Cameron--The Artist's Way)

There is so much natural beauty in the world, and especially in North America. You do a lovely job of sharing it with us.

「Think mystery not mastery」
It gives me a courage.
I hope to gain not wisdom but much imagination.

Oh I enjoyed this..these quote are terrific and I like the one by the Drover on your header as well. I've been struggling this week with different issues..and man, if you don't make sure to cultivate and feed the beauty (mystery not mastery) too..you'll end up with a weed (not what I wanted to put) lol))
You have a sunrise and a sunset- each just spectacular the Canyon is wow!! Well I appreciated your touch of the mystery and valuable read this morning- many thanks! Best wishes for a lovely weekend~

This planet continues to blow my socks off on a daily basis! It's a pretty neat rock, I would say!

Gorgeous. I could lose myself in looking at these gorgeous shots, Leenie.

Well how lovely. I've been feeling quite sorry for myself today, it being March and finding myself in Minnesota with no spring in sight . . . thank you for reminding me of beauty. I had forgotten it for a moment, I'm afraid. I've re-booted.

In my mind I think that when Jesus comes the world will look like these two photos.
