To See Takes Time


...A flower is relatively small. Everyone has many associations with a flower- the idea of flowers. You put out your hand to touch the flower - lean forward to smell it, maybe touch it with your lips almost without thinking - or give it to someone to please them, Still - in a way - nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small - we haven't time - and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time.

- Georgia O'Keefe "About Myself" catalog statement, 1939

[Watched a gem of a movie this blustery afternoon simply titled, Georgia O'Keefe, starring Joan Hall & Jeremy Irons. Got it out of the library!]
