Without Apology or Explanation

In his garden every man may be his own artist
without apology
or explanation.

Each within his green enclosure is a creator,

and no two shall reach the same conclusion;
nor shall we, any
more than other creative workers,
be ever wholly satisfied with
our accomplishment.

Ever a season ahead of us floats the vision

of perfection and herein lies its perennial charm.

Louise Beebe Wilder

I love Louise Beebee Wilder! I love that quote too -- so true.

I need to see if I can find her books at the library. Do you have any of her books?
