To see the earth as it truly is, small & blue & beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold.
-Archibald MacLeish (1892 - 1982)
While I think Mr. MacLeish takes a very lonely cold view of our earth, I do love his language & its pairing with this painting. Happy Friday Y'all!
