Beauty in the time that land and soil rest

Ever since I have read Paul Quenon’s Memoirs and found out that he is a photographer, I have been taken up with his photos and how very much he says without using words. This is so very true in the many photos that are used in MONKS ROAD — many of the photos are his!

So I must admit that I am not a photographer, but I like to look for the same simplistic beauty that this Trappist monk has done so well.

Here are some photos of winters at Mount Michael. Some of them are from the last snowfall and some are from past years. There can be incredible beauty in the time that land and soil are resting.
