Well said, it is very gratifying to find someone who can put into words, those thoughts or feelings that we ourselves are unable to articulate. Ironically, we are apt to describe much of modern society as "ugly", and now we see that in fact it is an absence of beauty, and even an absence of an appreciation of the value of beauty. People may no longer see the Britain of times past, but I experience the same here in Australia, maybe it was never as I perceived it.
