Intimate Details about This Art
This quote really caught my attention mostly because of the word Astonish. What a great word ! I hear it seldom used. This word evokes to me a sense of wonder combined with surprise. To be ASTONISHED is to feel something pretty grand... something has penetrated the doldrums of the daily routine to get my attention. I love to be surprised, to be Astonished.... and to live a life that ASTONISHES... just Wow.
