Pure


Raw beauty.  It's what I like best.  

People, food, pigments.  The purity of these gifts from nature before they are altered by our hands, machines, chemicals, and more.  

Step back and behold these rare untouched moments. 

The unconditional love of a person's heart, a genuine smile from a stranger, the sound of your beloved's voice.  Pure goodness of people.

Juice from a fresh-squeezed orange, the crunch of a raw carrot, and a lip-pucker from a slice of lemon.  Pure tastes of real food.

Vibrant color, minerals that shine, stones that sparkle.  Pure pigments which color our world.

Purity is precious.  Seek it.

  1. Gorgeously written. I love a glass of iced cold water on a very hot day; nothing quenches the thirst better. Love the intensity of that blue ;-)

  3. I know, why would anyone think that some preservative add anything good to something pure and so true.

  5. I cannot get enough of that image of Sean's. That cobalt just makes my eyes super happy. Both relaxed and energized all at one. As if I should be strolling through the streets of some ancient Greek village with a view of the Med. Ah, just dreaming a bit. Happy weekend!
