Even a Blade of Grass —

“The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”

                          –Henry Miller

Not on the face of it an image of perfection — and yet of course it is quite, quite perfect exactly as it is — because it is exactly as it is —

(This photograph of grass growing out of old Venetian stones  was taken by Pierre Pareja, whose blog, Venice Daily Photo, would make anyone homesick for Venice regardless of whether you’ve ever been there or not. It’s that good. And Pierre found the perfectly matching Henry Miller quotation as well. Thanks for permission to reprint, Pierre.)
