Living must be a pursuit.

Pursue beauty.
Pursue beauty.

Humans are mortal.  Our species is driven to survive.  We avoid pain and danger.  We gather comfort, security, food, a mate, social position, money.

During untroubled moments we banish our deepest–most difficult–thoughts.  So to allay boredom we golf, shop, watch television.

Through our short lives, that’s mostly what we do.

But certainly living should be more than escape from death or boredom.  I insist it be.

Living must be a pursuit.

The pursuit of what?

Wisdom?  Truth?  Greater compassion?

Beauty?

Beauty and its essence are the subject of this blog.  Join me.  What will we find?
