Sunday afternoon after the big snow I went for a slow walk in my neighborhood. The sun had come out and was making everything even more beautiful. It was one of those blissful experiences when I am particularly aware that I don't so much "take" pictures as "receive" them. I was immersed in Beauty. No matter how much beauty I was experiencing I still ached for more.
The Ultimate Beauty that we long for in those kinds of experiences is what we mean by the word "God." We let Beauty possess us.
