After rain...

.
After rain, the trees seem to breathe more easily, to declare their own shapes more clearly, to be committed even more to the vertical.
.
Intelligence is not a competence but a brightness.
.
The knowledge that we possess is leaden and useless when compared with the knowledge that suddenly arrives, with an energy that burns up every complacency.
.
As the shape of the winter sun is held in mist and cloud, so joy may be veiled or contained.
.
From values, shadows, tones, we may learn a tenderness, a fineness of concern, which we can lend in turn to values, shadows, tones.
