There is something so satisfying in seeing lovely things. I don’t know why. There is something very pleasant in beholding beautiful. Watch your newest niece and you’ll know its true – her face will erupt in delighted grins when she sees that new tablecloth you bought. Trust me.
So today, I celebrate all the art that has astounded me, moved me, brought tears to my eyes, or just made me smile.
Here are a few of my own attempts at beauty. I’m not there yet – but your niece might be trapped into a grin over them!
