Fresh beauty opens one's eyes wherever it is really seen, but the very abundance and completeness of the common beauty that besets our steps prevents its being absorbed and appreciated. It is a good thing, therefore, to make short excursions now and then to the bottom of the sea among dulse and coral, or up among the clouds on mountain-tops, or in balloons, or even to creep like worms into dark holes and caverns underground, not only to learn something of what is going on in those out-of-the-way places, but to see better what the sun sees on our return to common everyday beauty.
~ John Muir (1838 - 1914), My First Summer in the Sierra, 1911
Grace is a pure, fresh beauty as are all of our models and we love to appreciate them as John Muir is admiring nature in this quote. We hope you do too ;-)
Have a beautiful Labor Day! And remember to be enchanted everyday. Love, Colette
