The Earth’s Poetry

Everybody needs beauty as well
as bread, places to play in and
pray in, where nature may
heal and give strength
to body and soul.
~John Muir~ 

Those who dwell among the beauties
of  the earth are never alone
or weary of life.
~Rachel Carlson~

I believe there is a subtle magnetism
in Nature, which if we unconsciously
yield to it, will direct us aright.
~Henry David Thoreau~

Look deep into nature, and
then you will understand
everything better.
~Albert Einstein~ 

I took these photos yesterday at Crater Lake in south central Oregon. Crater Lake is a caldera lake created by the eruption and collapse of Mt. Mazama almost 7,000 years ago.  It is the deepest lake in the U.S. and the third deepest in the world.  It is famous for its brilliantly blue color and water clarity.  It is considered a sacred site by the Klamath tribe of Native Americans.  Standing on the edge of this lake is definitely a spiritual experience!   It reminds me of a quote  by Frank Lloyd Wright,  I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
