Portrayal of Beauty


has beauty,

but not everyone

sees it.”

— Confucius

in suit of armor

scales and spines shimmer and shine

presence of beauty

  1. I love this post. I think Leonardo said something similar, like “An artist sees beauty in everything.” I thought of that when we were in the Galapagos because not everyone thought swimming with marine iguanas and reef sharks was awesome, but we did! 🙂
