Skyscape 2, Stevensville, Montana

"Thoughts went out of her head and the landscape filled it."
- Eudora Welty, "Delta Wedding", p.4, 1946 hardcover edition

My sister emailed from Asia yesterday specifically to check up on me. Since I haven't posted comments beneath this week's photos, she wanted to be sure I was okay.  (Kind of her to not phrase her concern more at, "I've never known you at a loss for words - you should check your temperature!" But that's not her usual style - my sisters are grand humourists, but they default to sincere kindness.)

The Eudora Welty quote is a fitting answer to her sisterly query. 
It perfectly describes a common mental state in Montana.
When - not "if"!- you come visit, you'll see what I mean.

  1. I think you just needed motivation to find that succinct comment. Perfect quote.


Your thoughts, please?
