The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance.
one from my visit to California at the beginning of the year,
the other from my walk in the autumn of the year.
Both images that I considered pitching in the whole scheme of things,
both served to remind me to look beyond the first impression.
Perhaps it was the inner significance, the inner character that nudged me to keep them in the first place.
