The idea of gracefulness, in my mind, is closely intertwined with that of a certain type of beauty. It gives its observer the feeling that everything is exactly as it should be, that all is right in the world…even if it’s not. A graceful image can be an escape from the difficulties and conflicts of our day to day lives.
We cannot live every moment in a state of grace but we should perhaps seek out a few moments of it each day. It can provide us with a sense of perspective and appreciation for things outside of ourselves and our own little bundle of worries.
This picture was taken in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The majestic mountains sprawled under a wide-open sky and overlooking a sleepy two-lane highway evoke a sense of balance and beauty.
