Cascading Colorful Moss

The title of genius fit comfortably on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832). He wrote so powerfully that he caused a wave of suicides. Among his many interests, the theory of color captured his passion. He believed himself to have a greater understanding of the play of colors than any other human. Perhaps he did. It was an esthetic understanding not a scientific one

He wrote, ”Yellow is a light which has been dampened by darkness; Blue is a darkness weakened by light.”

I wonder what he would have said about the colors of the moss flowing over the rock-faced hillside in the picture above?



“Many people are willing to sell their souls to the devil,
but the devil doesn’t buy damaged goods.”
