Finding Beauty, Right Here At Home

Lynn U. Miller has lived in Westport most of her life. But she always finds new ways of seeing very familiar scenes.

Late Wednesday afternoon, she shot some photos near one of her favorite spots: the library. Lynn found even more serenity there than usual.

But, she says, not until she edited the images did she realize how fortunate we are to be able to spend even a few minutes of our day enjoying such peace, quiet and utter beauty.

She says: “Among all the crazy horror of Isis, the bickering politicians and horrendous train accidents, to name only a few, we get to have this…”

Amen, Lynn. And thank you.

    As a Staples student Lynn had a keen eye in discussing literature: however her aesthetic eye is even keener!
