To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common — this is my symphony.
— William Henry Channing said that

William Henry Channing had his symphony well “orchestrated”! 🙂
Your minimalistic composition has a nice Hitchcock feel to it.

what a fabulous quote. Wise words to live by.
And I love this wonderfully calm and minimalist image. The texture used is a perfect pairing too. I’m always partial to images that have lots of negative space.
