Colorful Covid Costume

I’m getting tired of posting doom and gloom monochrome images telling of the difficult times we’re going through, sooo here’s a change of pace. Yes, we are still under a shelter at home order. Yes, we are directed to wear masks when we venture out AND yes, there’s also a curfew in place.

BUT this Beacon Hill matron is doing it with so much style, one can’t help but smile.

The Magnificent Silence Between Thoughts

The silence between the bumps and burbles of our “monkey” mind’s endless river of thoughts contains the universe. We sometimes (but very rarely) feel its presence during meditation.

As we sit in our homes during this lockdown period, separated from all familiar routines, the stardust of our being is a little easier access.

No Exit…Yet

I’m posting this image simply as photograph I’m fond of, as well as a visual commentary on our current covid-19 locked down situation. Leaving aside the current corona virus pandemic, I like the way the line on the floor leads to the locked gate with its sign. The leading lines are nice and I like the way the light fades in the distance.

Switching to the photograph as commentary, currently the world is in a dark place. The end of these hard times are dimly in view but a clear vision of what’s ahead still is far from clear.

More A Feeling Than A Photo

Somehow color and clarity seem out of place in today’s buttoned up, locked down world. Spring flowers and the greening grass try valiantly to dispel the current gloom. Maybe someday……

Wabi Sabi Tree

The older I get (and that’s pretty damn old) the more I appreciate the marks that aging leaves. If this tree was a perfectly formed spruce I doubt it would attract half the interest that this old warrior does.

The Black Tree Mood

Yesterday’s, was clear and sunny and this photograph was taken in color. So why the dingy monochrome look? The simple answer is, it’s the way I felt.

This Covid-19 lockdown is getting on my nerves. The photograph could have and maybe even should have been developed as a colorful landscape. I just couldn’t do it.

It’s going to rain quite a bit this week.
