It’s Friday. And while some people Gotta get down on Friday, we’re getting down in our own way here on be, mama. be: with a quote.
Today’s words ring particularly true for me because I’m a big fan of beauty. I yearn and I desire and I beg to find beauty – Beauty – in the most unlikely of places. I want to see it peeking out of the heap of garbage, and I want my eyes to be transfixed and transformed by its tickling surprise. I want Beauty to catch my breath and cause my throat to hiccup and my eyes to well with gleeful tears. Because Beauty occupies a narrow band.
From Ian McEwan’s Atonement:
So, what do these words mean to you? Is beauty narrow and ugliness therefore expansive? Feel free to add your own favorite quote in the comment section below – perhaps it’ll show up one of these Fridays!
