“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gold Coast Australia – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Sharpie
This was painted from a photo of the Gold Coast in Australia by
Christine (Crispur2005) at WetCanvas. As I was working on this, I kept
thinking of the old Jetsons cartoon. Funny thing is that when Christine
saw this, she also thought of the Jetsons with no hint from me. I used
to love that cartoon when I was a kid.
About Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ralph Waldo Emerson helped spark the transcendentalist movement with
the essay Nature, which described his belief in the spiritual essence of
humanity and the natural world. He was born in Boston in 1803. He was a
Unitarian minister until he resigned in 1832 to become a philosopher
and writer. He suffered the untimely deaths of many of his loved ones:
three brothers, his first wife at age 20, and his eldest son at age
five. Emerson died in 1882.
