Awkward Growth

“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.”  -Sandra Kring

I’m not quite sure why I’ve been leaning towards pink and purple lately. I think it’s because I’ve been feeling hurt and angry, and I wanted to calm myself.

I think my images express my thoughts and moods even more than I realized. Maybe backwards though, because they tend to project what I want to feel, rather than what I do feel. I can live with that. 😉

Anyway, I shot this on my last visit to the old zoo. What’s interesting about the tree is that it’s growing somewhat sideways (and no… I didn’t tilt the camera). So… it works as a pretty good featured image for my weekend thoughts… about Growth.

I’ve already mentioned that I had some weird experiences last week. What’s funny is that I really was sent into a mini tail-spin for a day (or two)… BUT, I’m kind of excited now because I discovered that it was really just an opportunity for growth.

Pushing through the awkwardness, you could say.

I’ll do some follow-up posts this week, about some of the things I’m learning, and hearing- which means YES, I’ve been listening.

Blessings!!

  1. I think this image is lovely-Creativity, I understand is connected with the subconscious so perhaps it is a combination of all three above, below and right here and now. Bless you, Janet, I’m inspired by your curiosity, openness, and honesty

  2. I think this is a very true statement…”they tend to project what I want to feel, rather than what I do feel.” I know for me color is very influential on my mood, and if I put on a a brightly colored shirt, then it tends to brighten my mood. (I never wear gray on Monday, the first day of the work week!)

    1. Yellow, absolutely! For me today, brown. Okay, not the most exciting color, but it’s not gray! (I should have worn something brighter!)
