Fragrant Quote for November 25th, 2012-Rutherford Platt The Great American Forest

Jules Le Coeur et ses chiens

“The crunch and quiver of the ground underfoot, the swish of leaves around the ankles, the earthy fragrance, make the forest peculiarly sensuous and personal. Leaves on the trees had been far away and out of reach, blended in the green clouds of the forest canopy. But now, looking down at the details of the fresh carpet, the outlines of individual leaves attract the eye. No artist could draw more glamorous points, curves, waves and angles.”
