“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor touched, but are felt in the heart.” By Helen Keller. Do you agree? Why? Because we only see beautiful things then can feel beauty?
There are some things that we create out of need. Hope is that intangible that turns nothing into something; where anything is possible and everything is beautiful; where the selfless kindness of a stranger becomes all; where history blurs and dreams of a new tomorrow fold into the moment; color is fresh and sound is as nothing heard before or will be again; a gentle touch becomes something more as you feel that you exist in someone else’s eye; hunger is a thought forgotten; grief fades; pain drifts to the edge of awareness; and, where you stand, there is a stirring inside you. Beauty isn’t just visual.
This image by Photographer Ferzan Turan, of the Bosphorus Bridge of Istanbul, Turkey, can’t capture beauty totally by mere sight. To feel beauty we need to feel it in our heart, where the truth of beauty lies.
