About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. economy in art leads to beautry! who said something along these lines?
    why dive? why not float? the knot that bonds, roses and sunflowers as one parachute?

    • Love the roses & sunflowers as a parachute. Although roses are gorgeous, this particular lady prefers sunflowers to them–they are so bold (& my resident hummingbirds love them).

    I would love to see this sensibility spread farther. . . .

  3. ahhh–even better–I went with fly originally, but thought perhaps I was overusing, and dive gave the suggestion of control–float works beautifully here–Noel, you are a genius!

    Henry James said that–but he was quite long-winded, if I recall 🙂

    Wow, let’s hope we change direction!

  5. Mr. Walker says:

    It’s all a matter of perspective, isn’t it? This struck me as philosophical. And funny – for me it recalled Douglas Adams’ take on flying: falling, but not hitting the ground.
