Beauty is addictive.  When you first glimpse aspects of it, you want it, and you begin seeking it, and the more you seek, the more you want it.

But beauty is also elusive and requires diligence if one is ever to find it.  And you find it in bits.  And you must be most alert, if you ever hope to understand what it is that you got.

It was there, it is gone, like the changing light.  Nevertheless, it’s a charming search — this hide and seek with beauty that enlarges the mind by small degrees.
