You are one of the rare people who can separate your observation from your preconception. You see what is, where most people see what they expect.
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.
Alison McGhee, All Rivers Flow To The Sea

Few people ask from books what books can give us. Most commonly we come to books with blurred and divided minds, asking of fiction that it shall be true, of poetry that it shall be false, of biography that it shall be flattering, of history that it shall enforce our own prejudices. If we could banish all such preconceptions when we read, that would be an admirable beginning.
Virginia Woolf, The Second Common Reader

Falling, Julee Cruise

Roadhouse Blues, The Doors

The Last of the Mohicans, The Gael /Promentory, Dougie Maclean & Trevor Jones

A striking title for this wonderful artwork with appropriate attributes (quotes and music links), John.
After each contribution from you one waits expectantly for the next one. And when it appears, it always meets far more than the expectations set. Compliments for that, 👍!

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," comes to mind when I look at your latest creation John.
It looks as smooth as glass and the colors are deep and rich.
Add some great quotes and music and you have another meal for the mind and soul.
Great work my friend. Have a good Sunday.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
