The first in time and the first in importance of the influences upon the mind is that of nature. Every day, the sun; and after sunset, night and her stars. Ever the winds blow; ever the grass grows.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882), U.S. essayist, poet, philosopher. Oration, August 31, 1837, delivered before the Phi Beta Kappa Society, Cambridge, Massachusetts. “The American Scholar,” repr. In Emerson: Essays and Lectures, ed. Joel Porte (1983).

  1. Oooooooo. Beautiful.

  2. If you hadn’t said Florida, I wouldn’t have known. It ain’t Miami!

    Every time I read the quotation you’ve chosen, I feel like you know everything. 🙂

  3. I was riding down to Daytona from my home in TN. I was riding the back roads and absolutely enjoying myself. Riding the back roads takes about 3 hours longer than taking I-95. I rode late into the night. When I noticed the sun buring like the horizon like this: I pulled the camera up to my eye, I was driving about 45 miles an hour and I snapped this photo. I kept shooting at this sunset until I could no longer see the sun. (About 5 minutes.) This was the ONLY shot that I thought was good enough to keep. Out of about 25.
