Inner Optics

This is not a blog...it's a visual dialogue.
As an artist, I always keep an eye out for images that are interesting and inspiring to me. INNER OPTICS is a place to store and spotlight the art, photography, poetry and music I find.

*“Nature is not something that can be seen by the eye alone- it lies also within the soul, in pictures seen by the inner eye…” Edvard Munch
