The Aesthetic of Simplicity

The Aesthetic of Nature


There is a rhythm of the seasons

There are cycles of time

There are open spaces

There are natural processes

Textures

Sounds

Feelings

Smells

Fire

Water

Air

Grass, leaves

Birds

The weather

We cannot control the weather

Learn acceptance from that

Learn truth

Everything is connected to nature


I have begun to write, really write, my dissertation. My tutor is encouraging me to try writing at least one chapter in a poetic manner. It's harder than it seems.

Yes - much harder than one would think. Glorious colours in the photo - hard to come anywhere close to that in words! Worth the effort though. Gilly

If this is a sample of your writing I think you're doing a good job. Good luck with the dissertation Judy. This time next year I'll be doing the same.

beautiful in its seeming simplicity - you convey so much feeling with your words.
