The earth's music

Philosopher George Santayana, who died 60 years ago this month, is perhaps best known for his quote, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”   

The Spanish-born Santayana (who spent almost as much time in America as in his native Spain and often referred to himself as a “dual” citizen), loved the beauty of the world around him and also gave eloquent notes on nature.  I like this one, which nicely illustrates the Fall Color photo I took yesterday in the Colorado mountains.

Looking out on a similar scene, Santayana said:  “The earth has music for those who listen.”  

And, I would add, words for the writer’s creations.
