Life upon the larger scale

Closeup of one of Chihuly's Persians

"What is art but life upon the larger scale, the higher. When, graduating up in a spiral line of still expanding and ascending gyres, it pushes toward the intense significance of all things, hungry for the infinite?"

- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I have no idea what I'm looking at, but it draws me in!


Bright scarlet is just the right thing
To make a sad heart start to sing;
It fills you with cheer—
Now isn’t that clear?
It’s better than any old bling!

Excellent work, Robin. It almost looks like a flower, maybe a shiny red morning glory, just opening up.

I can't quite figure out what your picture is. It's very interesting though. I just love E.B.B.

Great ruby; it
made me feel like drawn into a maelstrom of red beauty.
The deep darkness versus the sun shining through the transparent parts.
Some vivid Persians.

Robin, I'm impressed that you were allowed to take the time to take such wonderful photos! In our museums, they get a little testy if you look like you're doing anything interesting!
