When Things Come Alive

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2013 by stevemccurry

Night
when words fade and things come alive.
When the destructive analysis of day is done, and
all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again.
When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

It was peace.
