mastering the wind

“Boreas” by John William Waterhouse

Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness … the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world man will have discovered fire.
~ Teilhard de Chardin

  1. I guess we won’t be harnessing the magnificence of love any time soon… (And I suspect not controlling those tides, those waves, that gravity, the sun or the moon either.) Incredible picture!

    1. I love the picture, too, there will be many more Waterhouse paintings showing up here! 🙂

      When I think of “harness” I think of renewable energy sources, like wind turbines and solar power. If we manage to make harnessing these energies a priority there will be more room for love to grow and flourish… Dwelling in possibility…

Your thoughts are much appreciated...
