WPC, Tour Guide: Mildly Intoxicating Feeling of Beauty

The enjoyment of beauty has a peculiar, mildly intoxicating quality of feeling. Beauty has no obvious use; nor is there any clear cultural necessity for it. Yet civilization could not do without it.

–Sigmund Freud

Nothing quite as serene as  a summer sunset over a local Michigan lake,  the sky lit by a golden glow and a stillness in the air.

      Glad you enjoyed the photos. Freud always a hard guy to pin down, but I suspect he was thinking that beauty is a sublimation of our feeling of love for another, perhaps a long lost love. Of course, he might say that I was just projecting my own feelings into his comment. 🙂
