Nature’s Cathedrals

October 2, 2011

Grape leaves

 “The out-of-doors has been to me more and more a great cathedral in which God would be continuously spoken to and heard from.”
     — George Washington Carver

Standing under the arch of this grape arbor, with the changing leaves glowing like stained glass, felt a bit like being in Nature’s cathedral.

“There is a way of beholding nature which is a form of prayer, a way of minding something with such clarity and aliveness that the rest of the world recedes.”
     — Diane Ackerman, One Hundred names for Love: A Stroke, a Marriage, and the Language of Healing

    True beauty. I am putting this book by Diane Ackerman on my reading list. It should be worthwhile from what I have read.
