They don't, you know...

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science."

  1. WOW, I just went thru your blog and found it very intriquing. What wonderful illistations, comments and quotes. I love the contrast between your simplistic sketch work and deep thoughts. I also commented on your Africa photos and I am interested in seeing more. I would love to try my hand at painting some of them if it would be ok with you? Thanks for the comments on my blog, I so glad it brought me to yours!

  2. I've always loved that quote!

    Thinking about your post reminded me of when I was little. I would concentrate so hard trying to imagine what is before...before this earth, before the universe, before time...
    The process was like stretching a rubber band, only to find it snapping back into the present in frustration. There really is a limit to our understanding now, and no matter how hard we strive to search the mysteries out, there are always more beyond. I think that's probably why I especially love the promise "We will know even as we are known"!

    Thanks for giving me something beautiful to think about this morning...

  9. I think that they know.
    It's us that don't know that they know that we don't know what they know.
