i realized yesterday while i was watching a movie with beautiful scenery that beauty is best served to me in small doses. beauty fills me so completely that it is like i need to take small amounts at a time to really appreciate it. i love the 'big picture' but it's the small parts that make the whole that really do it for me. of all the daily photos i have taken for these past 8 months and a few days, i think that this is one of my most favorite photos. to me, it is perfection.
