Claude Monet, “its simply necessary to love.”

“People discuss my art and pretend to understand

as if it were necessary to understand,

when it is simply necessary to love.”    Claude Monet

A marvelous and inspiring quote from Claude Monet, that had me reflecting one afternoon as I was sitting by the water.

As the sun played upon the surface, 1000’s of entangled lines of light shimmered and I loved their beauty.

It dawned on me. The image had no rhyme or reason. It had no traditional form or shape.

It is not something to be “understood,”  – simply loved or not.
