The Pensive Palette: Call of Beauty

The Pensive Palette: Call of Beauty

(personal photo reference)

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

I love this quote and try to heed the message, which only seems to grow in importance as I get older.  It’s so easy to become weary under the weight of “worldly cares” and sight of our higher purpose. 

 Making a point to include a little beauty in our lives helps counter the drudgery of the mundane.  In fact, consciously adding beauty to our daily routine leads to the habit of looking for it in every aspect of life.
