“There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.” ― Pythagoras
What is the shortest distance between two points? What is the shortest distance between two people? What is the angle of intersection when you are happy? And when you are lonely?
“He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance”
― Dominic Miller, “The Shape of My Heart”
How do you build something structurally sound to house kindness, joy, courage, love, resilience? In a Universe of fact and feeling, of truth and spirit, how do you dwell in the spaces outlined by a complexity of ideas?
Aldo Leopold Shack
Physics talks to us in geometry. We think beauty has to do with geometry.
Interesting, especially the BW pictures.
Thanks for sharing

Never took Physics, actually. Wish I had! Thanks for your visit! 🙂
Your final paragraph is masterful. You’re relating how you felt in an earlier life as well as some philosophical feelings you have now. Thanks for beautiful photos for this week’s theme — and “the music in the spacing of the spheres.”
Thank you so much! Always a pleasure to post. 🙂
What a beautifuly thoughtful post Priscilla, really nicely done. Loved the way you wove between concrete and abstract applications. And your closing thought about how geometry gave you a new perspective on life was perfect!
Thank you, Tina! I’m enjoying seeing geometric examples in architecture from far distant places I’ve never been.
Thoughtful insights, good photos.
Thanks, John! 🙂
Another person who enjoyed geometry. Hurrah. Enjoy both your thoughts and photos. 🙂
Pythagoras was a really deep thinker. His reach was much longer than his grasp.
It would certainly seem so!
If only I’d learned about geometry through art, Scilla. Not my fav subject!
Love your shots. M
I think you have a great idea for an alternative curriculum there! Thanks, Meg! 🙂
Hi Scilla, thanks for your comment. It got me to get a post done! M
Lovely words and lovely illustrations, Priscilla – a great post.
Thanks, Ann-Christine! I loved your Easter gallery today – so soft and pretty!
What a thoughtful post, Priscilla, filled with lovely pictures and your thought provoking message.
Thank you, Sylvia! 🙂
Great selection of photos.
Thanks, my friend!
