What is important, then, is not that the critic should possess a correct abstract definition of beauty
for the intellect, but a certain kind of temperament, the power of being deeply moved by the presence
of beautiful objects. – Walter Pater

Hi! Welcome to my blog!

As a writer, photographer, and artist, I love the aha moment that comes when I see a connection between an image and lines of prose, poetry, or even a fragment from my own journal.

Satin & Sand looks at the beautiful, extraordinary, sensual, and passionate in life and love (and also the gritty side – as in love lost).
