“People discuss my art and pretend to understand

as if it were necessary to understand,

when it is simply necessary to love.”    Claude Monet

A marvelous and inspiring quote from Claude Monet, that had me reflecting one afternoon as I was sitting by the water.

As the sun played upon the surface, 1000’s of entangled lines of light shimmered and I loved their beauty.

It dawned on me. The image had no rhyme or reason. It had no traditional form or shape.

It is not something to be “understood,”  – simply loved or not.
