Ventura is filled with talented people who see this world in a beautiful, inspiring, uplifting way. And, even in the most challenging times, our world — here in Ventura and in places far beyond — remains filled with beauty and light. Lovely photographs, lovely paintings, lovely poems, lovely songs. Lovely moments and gestures. As simple as a hand reaching out, or a word of compassionate understanding.
It is good — and important — to remember the beautiful. So now and again we’re doing a simple thing. A snippet of beauty here, a snippet of beauty there. From Ventura. And from around the world. Because we are all in this together. And we are all elevated by beauty.
So here is some beautiful, courtesy of Ventura photographer Steve Cattanach, whose lovely view through the lens melds stunning with serene, so that we may think twice about the inspiration all around us.
And an inspiring thought from Nelson Mandela. For we are all here together.
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
