"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
- Henry Ward Beecher
(do you know why i picked this quote? because this is exactly the sort of thing i've tried to paint - and wish i could paint. oh, if only i could. then again, i am grateful that i can at least paint it with my camera, even if i can't paint it with the paintbrush.)
(clearly my nature must be very calm and zen-like. ha. i wish. but it does remind me of conversations with future me, who is so zen that she drives me batty. the last time i talked to her, i asked her if i was a particular thing. she said something wise and pithy like, "i am and i am not, because you create your own future in each moment." so annoying. it's a wonder i talk to her at all.)
