Life Capitalized

a visual interpretation of Sarah Orne Jewett’s words

“It was a good change for a little maid who had tried to grow for eight years in a crowded manufacturing town, but, as for Sylvia herself, it seemed as if she never had been alive at all before she came to live at the farm.” —Sarah Orne Jewett

As hard as we may try we will
never truly escape the pull and
desire of the city, of wealth, of
capitalism. But if we are lucky we
may find nature reaching out her
hand to us through the cracks of
sidewalks, through the light of
the sun, and maybe we will find a
life of nature capitalized into one
—Cecelia Meyer

I am a undergrad student at Fontbonne University studying strategic communications and philosophy. I am involved in student government and campus ministry. When I am not studying, I enjoy color coding my oversized agenda, classic novels, and an iced coffee.
