"Come away from the din.
Come away to the quiet fields,
over which the great sky stretches,
and where, between us and the stars,
there lies but silence;
and there, in the stillness
let us listen to the voice
that is speaking within us." - Jerome K. Jerome
Head in the Clouds. Mixed media by Linda Nardelli. Website here.
There are times when I gravitate toward art that invites stillness, introspection and connection with the greater scheme of things.

"Kathryn Frund’s compositions… are landscapes of the mind – vast visions of barren desert, slate seas, and familiar but unidentifiable objects and places that read like hazy memories." - Ken Shulman

"Let us spend one day as deliberately as nature, and not be thrown off the track by every nutshell and mosquito's wing that falls on the rails. Let us rise early and fast, or break fast, gently and without perturbation .... Let us not be upset and overwhelmed in that terrible rapid and whirlpool .... If the engine whistles, let it whistle till it is hoarse for its pains. If the bell rings, why should we run." - Henry David Thoreau
