The thing you are ripening toward is the fruit of your life.
It will make you bright inside, no matter what you are outside.
It is a shining thing.

"two lips"

"who ever you are, come forth! or man or women come forth!...
Out of the dark, confinement! out from behind the screen!
It is useless to protest, I know all and expose it.

~Walt Whitman,'Song of the Open Road'

feeling a little pink & green...

I went to the market yesterday , to get my basic stuff...fruit, half&half, veggies, bread...well...the veggies were looking quite beautiful...and so of course i decided to shoot before consuming them...enjoy the lovely images...I think this life style of living alone is catching up with me....no one to answer to can really get the creative juices flowing...Have a sunny day!!

Monet...the man

"sometimes I stop, stunned suddenly to
discover dazzling things the existance of
which I never suspected."

today, will be full of creative doings, if that is a word. My mind is full...I almost have to write everything down, so I can organize it...but in the past if I write ..it losses the magic...I will continue to just go on a whim and allow my soul to guide me...oh, that's my new image
"ethereal" the one word project for shuttersisters.

the birth of individuality....

"the most important event in the life of a man
is the moment when he becomes conscious
of his own ego."

from the book {Truth and Reality} Otto Rank
I just finished Ch.1 it's quite a hard read, but it is so worth it, for what it gives me, in
my inside life...have a most wonderful weekend.
