Day 132: Something Beautiful—A Contemplative Garden in Giverny

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

A willow, pond, flowering spring trees, blooming bushes, and a bench. Beauty as holy, peaceful, a sanctuary. A place from which to contemplate the world and elevate the soul. Forgetting the unfathomable, unknowable, unfixable. Meditating on glorious color, harmony—and beauty. Were Monet’s paintings feasts of imagination? This garden, his garden, is every bit as exquisite as his interpretations.
