I Love the Imagination of Light

John O’Donahue writes, “I love the imagination of light: how gradually light will build a mood for the eye to discover something new.…This glimpse serves to deepen the presence of [what we’re seeing] and remind the eye that surface can be subtle and surprising.” (Beauty: The Invisible Embrace, p. 34)

One morning this past winter the rising sun cast light through fence slats onto rose bushes in our garden, creating wonder-full abstracts. The surfaces of the stems and thorns were a surprise as they reflected the broken light.
