The Clones

Life among clones would not be worth living, and a sane person will only rejoice that others have abilities that they do not share. That should be elementary.

Time Out

Temporarily Closed for Spiritual Maintenance.

Doesn’t that sound like a fabulous idea?!

I was getting (mentally) prepared to post about the word THERAPEUTIC for the letter “T” in my series Life: From A to Z, and I started feeling tired. My mind was exhausted of any thoughts about the alphabet, and I was compelled to work on the featured image instead—with no agenda or plan about how it might fit into my t-word.

“I need a time out,” I thought to myself.

And that’s when it hit me. “T” is for Time Out.

Radiance

Everything which originates from pure love is lit with the radiance of beauty.

SIMONE WEIL

Here we are, back for my series Life: From A to Z, and the letter “R” made me think of the word RADIANCE. And nothing is more radiant than love, a beautiful woman, and an amazing peony in full bloom. Believe it or not, I had never seen a peony before yesterday and—oh my God—they’re the most beautiful flowers that I’ve ever seen! Talk about intricate details.

Life: From A to Z

After working on the featured image—which is a section of a tall yucca flower that I photographed on my recent hike—I thought about the letter “O” and the word Observant.

I enjoy macro photography and working with close-ups because I love the little details in things. Most of the time, I have to get into Photoshop and “zoom and crop” in an effort to find those precious details. That’s why the word observant got me to thinking. If I could just slow down and observe those details to begin with, I’d save myself a lot of time and work. And I’d have more joy.

Nature’s Blueprint

Have you ever noticed that nature is perfect?

I don’t know about you, but the more I learn about the universe and everything in it—the stars, the sun and the moon, earth, nature, DNA, the human mind, our bodies, cells, nutrients, etc., etc.—the more I’m convinced that we’re missing something big.

I think that humans have been given the power to do so much more than what we do right now, we just haven’t figured out how to use it. Or somebody already did and they’re keeping it a secret. Maybe the answer is hidden in Area 51? Who knows….
