God's handiwork

“The straight line belongs to man, the curve to God.”
Antonio Gaudi

I came across this quote while reading about a favorite of mine, architect Antonio Gaudi. I immediately agreed with him. I don’t know why but it just rang true. Some days later I walked into my kitchen and was met with the scene of the sun shining on my little purple cabbage. It was so beautiful I almost didn’t chop it up. The Gaudi quote came right back to me when I saw it. It got me thinking about the greatest accomplishments of man like space shuttles, skyscrapers and the pyramids. They are all so stiff and unbending. I much prefer God’s cabbage.

  1. Very true! I feel like his buildings belong in the world of Edvard Munch's screaming character. ~L
