Beauty in a Grain of Sand

"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free." Michelangelo
Have you ever looked at a tree and noticed the sun shining through the leaves? How they glimmer and become almost translucent? How the color is alive and vibrant? Or have you walked on the beach and marveled at those tiny little grains of sand? How they shine as if each were a diamond just ready to be plucked?
Man has been awed by the beauty of nature since the begining of time. The great masters saw more in a piece of stone or a stretched canvas something that needed to be released. The beauty they saw in their raw materials was much more than words could describe, so they set them "free."
Each one of us has the potential to do that; if not with our hands, with our minds. This power uplifts and transcends us. Next time you find yourself in the garden or on the beach, find the beauty in a grain of sand.
Until next time,
