I’ve forgotten the words with which to tell you. I knew them once, but I’ve forgotten them, and now I’m talking to you without them.”

Literature may, but visual art doesn’t need to have a word.
As our perception, and the each parts of brain are
completely different anyway. 😉

I agree. And yes, images and language are stored in different parts of the brain.

And well-chosen words they are, Melanie….I find myself in the same situation out in the canyons and mountains sometimes…beholding a vista that is breath-taking…beyond simple or grand superlatives…indeed beyond our words for expression……an understandable sentiment with your image here, too…..so very nice…..

Very dreamlike – love the way it works with the text. There but not there.

A wonderful description, I love that. Thank you, Richard.
This is stunning, Melanie.

It looks like it is glowing and radiating its own light.

I agree; that’s exactly what caught my eye about it. I’m glad I was able to capture it.
I love that quote. No words needed, just your silken image. : )

Thank you, Seonaid.
Marguerite is the French word for daisy.

Yes. Perhaps on another day I’ll pair up Duras and a daisy. 🙂

Yes, and you can drink a margarita when you do. Also, if you split up her last name you have dur as, meaning ‘hard ace.’
