Reflections on Image

  WHEN THE IMAGE IS NEW THE WORLD IS NEW-Gaston Bachelard I love beautiful design and things, or mostly I really appreciate them.  How they make you feel when you see them for the first time.  The appreciation for the person who magically thought of gathering balloons in waves of color, or was skillful in arranging simple flowers to make them look majestic or … Read More Reflections on Image
