Beauty in the World Still Exists

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

As a reminder, no matter what you might see on social media or in the clout of negativity online, this storm will pass, life will continue on as seamlessly as it had before. This will all be but a moment in retrospect soon enough. As photography and travel have taught me countlessly and I've mentioned many times, even now, amidst all the dramaticism, speculation, panic and worry, beauty in abundant and countless variations and places still exists.

"Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring, Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish, Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?) Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d, Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me, Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined, The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?

Answer. That you are here—that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse."

-Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
