    Default Random Snippets of Beauty

    This thread will be dedicated to random pieces of beauty that I stumble across. Most of it will be pictures and music that I find.

    To start it out here are frozen bubbles in a lake:

    And a few shots of space because astronomy is one of my favorite subjects.

    The movie, The Fountain, is one of my favorites. Mainly because the music is so beautiful. Nothing is greater than violins.



    The continent I most want to visit:

    You must be looking at the same news feeds I am, I loved those pics too.

    I haven't seen The Fountain yet, but I love Aranofsky's work that I've seen. There's a beauty amid all the dark, in terms of things struggling to be true to themselves and either emerging from the imprisoning chrysalis or dying by not emerging.
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    And the lifeblood of many INFPs: Poetry!

    e.e. cummings:
    if everything happens that can't be done
    (and anything's righter
    than books
    could plan)
    the stupidest teacher will almost guess
    (with a run
    skip
    around we go yes)
    there's nothing as something as one

    one hasn't a why or because or although
    (and buds know better
    than books
    don't grow)
    one's anything old being everything new
    (with a what
    which
    around we come who)
    one's everyanything so

    so world is a leaf so a tree is a bough
    (and birds sing sweeter
    than books
    tell how)
    so here is away and so your is a my
    (with a down
    up
    around again fly)
    forever was never till now

    now i love you and you love me
    (and books are shuter
    than books
    can be)
    and deep in the high that does nothing but fall
    (with a shout
    each
    around we go all)
    there's somebody calling who's we

    we're anything brighter than even the sun
    (we're everything greater
    than books
    might mean)
    we're everyanything more than believe
    (with a spin
    leap
    alive we're alive)
    we're wonderful one times one
    and:

    i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
    my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
    i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
    by only me is your doing,my darling)
    i fear
    no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
    no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
    and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
    and whatever a sun will always sing is you

    here is the deepest secret nobody knows
    (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
    and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
    higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
    and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

    i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
    And W.B. Yeats:

    HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
