St. Augustine: and the people forgot themselves.

Resurrection Bay by Rockwell Kent

"And the people went there and admired the high mountains, the wide wastes of the sea, and the mightly downward rushing streams and the ocean and the course of the stars, and forgot themselves."

~ St. Augustine of Hippo, Confessions


  1. Marybeth: I was looking for the source of this quote, which I believed to be from St. Augustine, as quoted by Rockwell Kent, and of the choice of references that popped up on my screen, I happened to pick this one--and there was your name. You must love "Wilderness" as much as I do. -- Louise Freeman (I don't even know if you know who I am, but I'm a memoir writer who lives in Anchorage.)

  2. Louise, Yes, I do you who you are - and know of your work - all good things. So nice to see you here on Art and Nature. And I look forward to reading your work!
