“Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.” E.B. White
Around every corner, underneath every pebble, and surrounding a blade of grass, a magical, wild, wilderness exists, if you only take the time to look and let curiosity guide you. Wonderful moments exists around every corner and, for me, I captured this feeling with this photograph of a spider, staring off into the distance, perched on a leaf of goldenrod, like “stout Cortez…silent, upon a peak in Darien”.
To me, this spider is like
“stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He star’d at the Pacific — and all his men
Look’d at each other with a wild surmise —
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.”
