beauty is permanent, 
it is as valid today as it has ever been
beauty is bare, it does not create false promises, ephemeral joy,
beauty is an experience not an object, it leads us into the heat of the desert, the wildness of the soul.

In a society where everything and every one is held to strict time limits, beauty is timeless, infinite, limitless beauty is an act of défiance.
Giant Flowers, Dust and Diamonds, Volubilis under the Moon, 
Sacred Warriors remaining still, Singing Trees, Golden Shields and Burning Skies.

Beauty is the breath of light, a cantos sung to the face of the world, the echo of love
