The view from the saltmaker's cabin (built ca. 1820) never fails to astonish me. I have come to recognize that the forces moving the air, and those moving the water, will echo one another with remarkable symmetry. There is little "composing" involved in finding this natural abstraction. Giorgio Morandi observed that there is nothing more abstract than reality. Here it is, again. That symmetry is also a potent feature of justice: the effect of righting a wrong is the restoration of a beautiful symmetry.
