“The texture of our universe is one where there is no question at all but that good and laughter and justice will prevail.”
In the strictest sense, texture refers to the look or feel of a thing, but as in Mr. Scott’s opening quote, it can also take on a more abstract meaning. Could it not refer to the texture of relationships, environments, our very lives?
“The texture of my own mind renders me very indifferent to the rest of the world.”
There are people who have richly textured lives – beyond work and family they seem able to maintain interests in things like the arts, music, philanthropy, sports, education and any number of other areas. Perhaps the much-maligned “Jack of all Trades, Master of None” is not such a terrible thing after all.
“Art is the colors and textures of your imagination.”
Beyond our various interests, perhaps the texture of our lives could be enriched by focus on what’s right with the world rather than what’s wrong. Surely there are as many things to be happy about as there are subjects deserving of complaint.
“The past becomes a texture, an ambience to our present.”
Finally, I would suggest that nature in all her abundance can add layers of texture to our lives if we will only let her. A walk in the woods, a stroll on the beach or a simple quiet moment in our own backyard can soothe the soul and refresh the spirit as nothing else. Here then, a few more examples of nature’s textures.
“It’s a man’s world they say; but in its daily textures it is a world created by and for women.”
“Extinction rates soar and the texture of life changes.”
“I think great romance demands great obstacles and textures.”
“The eyes’ perception of texture is pale compared to the lips’.”
Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
