The agreeable eye

an eudæmonistarchives


It is, somewhat unexpectedly, snowing. It is quite beautiful.1

  1. I am no longer sure what the definition of beauty is, as I have been reading too much philosophy, but by this statement I mean to indicate that the visual perception of the falling snow creates in me a sense of gratification and appreciation, this sense being heightened by the supposition (which may be erroneous) that the consequences of this precipitation will be neither excessive nor of long duration, as well as by the contrast between the whiteness of the snow and the vivid green of the spring-time moss.
