thanks for the cheer-up music tips, folks – keep ’em coming if you got ’em! I was about to apologize for inflicting my morose mood on you, last post, but then I reconsidered — I’m coming to terms with black just being a colour in my palette, you know? Not every day will be love and sunshine, and that’s okay. It would be foolish for me to behave as if it wasn’t!
Besides which, there’s a hidden gift in feeling lost, provided we can get put aside our self pity long enough to realize it; it’s a moment of stillness in which to re-examine our motivations, our foundations, our direction. A break in the daily rhythm, the regular pattern of behaviour. Its a chance to reflect and recommit ourselves, and a reminder to make thankful, mindful choices. Yeah sure, it might feel for a bit like a forced re-examination, but consider – how often do you really sit down and spend some time with your dreams and values except for when the going gets rough? It’s so easy to lose track of the “why” in the bustle of keeping up with to-do lists, appointments, and other daily responsibilities.
Anyway, that my deep thought for you today. Here are some photos of colourful things and interesting patterns accumulated from the last few weeks. I’ve noticed – I hardly take pictures of actual things, of subjects. I’m almost always engaged in a colour study — that is unless i’m photographing shit I’ve made! Hope that you enjoy them.
Points to anyone who can identify this last picture! You have until Monday to ruminate. 🙂
be well my friends.
