These are the rest of the photos I took on my trip up to Vancouver, Canada. Isn’t fall just the most beautiful season?
I had a moment during a recent train ride, when dusk was just setting in and the colors of the trees, grass, and sky were so oddly saturated and beautiful that I completely lost my train of thought and just had to stare out the window until dark set in. I remember learning a while ago that in Japanese there’s actually a word for moments like this: yuugen (幽玄). Correct me if I’m using it wrong, but from what I’ve found it’s an idea that describes the sudden moments when you have this profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of life. I think I’ve always been able to experience them, but having an actual word in my mind to recognize them with seems to make me that much more conscious of the beauty around me. It’s funny how language works that way, isn’t it?
Do you know the feeling I’m talking about?
