Like sands through the hourglass....

Even when I was 8 years old I remember thinking years ago, while listening to the start of my Mom's favorite soap opera; "Days of Our Lives" that life was kinda like that hourglass. That moments come and go like those sands in the hourglass, and elusively pass into our memories. Memories that seem to stay with you whether they be good or bad, usually burn themselves into the recesses of our minds because they have an emotional tag of some sort attached. I will post a few more images through Oct. and November as this seems to be a very reflective time of year. Hope you enjoy them and perhaps they bring back some special memories of your own.

What is the reality of what we really see, or feel, or sense....

While watching a compelling episode of Morgan Freeman's "Into the Wormhole" I was thorughly engrossed in his compelling program about scientists who firmly believe there are dimensions and spheres that though they may not be visible, are nevertheless still there. Places where possibly our twin or triplet operates in an unseen dimension of space and time etc etc. A regular modern day theory that would leave the likes of Rod Serling or Carl Sagan titillated.....well anyway......I believe we look directly into the eyes of our maker and into the wide open universe at times, when we look into nature. So thus inspired, I share with you a few of my interpretations

Intimate With Nature; Water

Image "Little water falls and moss"
July Mountain Stream....
So hot and dry above the trees lining the stream, yet it is cool,shady and quiet under the canopy of the trees. I sit on a large mossy rock in the middle of the stream bed. A stream where just a few months ago, after spring rains and winters melting snows, the stream swelled, roared. And sent snaking down the mountain, thundering torrents and waves of black water. Massive gray boulders in place and embedded for a million years, are rolled down the mountain by this mighty rush of water, like a little childs marbles. Large trees whose roots had clung to the stones along the streams banks, lose their grip and are shredded like kindling. Now, there is just a gentle whisper, a hint of water trickling on the rocks below. A green maple leaf, winds it's way down the streams narrow path, and a tree sparrow is singing in the trees nearby.

Tree of Life

The lonely twisted tree survives precariously on the very edge of the canyon walls. Wintry blasts and summers scorching heat, have yet to reduce it to cinders. It's roots have patiently dug deep into the rock and sand, as it hangs on with a deaths grip, to the canyons edge. It's scant limbs and sparse needles, always reaching to embrace the sun.

Evenings Blanket 3

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore — While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door — Only this and nothing more." ~The Raven, Edgar Allen Poe

as the day is done and darkness starts to take hold... I embrace in my mind, the fading beauty and last vestiges of sunlight, and enter the safe harbor of darkness.

Intimate with Flowers & Nature; Daffodil Embrace

Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life, and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights. All is divine harmony. ~John Muir Man's bond with nature, It is so missing in society today. We long for a simpler life and yet we continue to make it more and more complicated. Tethering ourselves to multiple electronic devices. Umbilical cords that numb and dumb us even more....
