The Most Beautiful Part

Quote Logo

A traveler, as he passed through a forest, saw a part of a huge oak, which appeared misshapen, and almost seemed to spoil the scenery. “If,” sad he, “I was the owner of this forest, I would cut down that tree.” But when he had ascended the hill, and taken a full view of the forest, this same tree appeared the most beautiful part of the landscape. “How erroneously,” said he, “I judged when I saw only a part!” The full view, the harmony and proportion of things, are all necessary to clear up our judgment.

I booked a Champagne VIP balloon flight for Sarah’s birthday as she has always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon. It was an amazing experience and when I got back to see what I’d taken I zoomed in onto this photo and the trees still look like broccoli to me!
