The image gets the strenght of evidence.
Great choice for this quote, less known than THE famous ONE.

Do you believe me if I tell you I kept this quote with me those last years ? How true....... Desolation feel & field here are so powerful, I feel I can see a woman like a statue (lower part, do you see her ?) and she's dancing elegantly in her white dress imitating the tree's shape or maybe the tree is about to invite her to the dance. A tree, boats in distance, the white sea, and the dead woods resting - all this touch my heart and I tell you without extra lyrism, that's really IT. Thanks for sharing & catch those tender thoughts, sis*

A lovely composition with that leaning tree, the sea, and the sky we know so well. I also like that ship in this careful composition.
