Tonight I took my walk at sunset. I happened to see a neighbor whose lovely garden has been an endless inspiration (you may have seen my photographs of its abundant protea), and stopped to tell her so and thank her. We had a wonderful talk. I told her about my beauty walks and the Beauty Dialogues, and she told me about a walk she’d just been on in Point Reyes, where it was exquisite and she’d noticed patterns everywhere. She seemed enchanted by the idea of writing about beauty, saying she often thought those things, but never imagined writing them.
I invited her to post her thoughts here, which I very much hope she does, and want to take this opportunity to invite anyone else who has thoughts or questions or noticings about beauty, to bring them to this space (use the comments field below each post) so we can all reflect on them.
