“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”

~ Ansel Adams (1902 – 1984)

Silvery, contemplative passage invites one to connect with oneself, as well as to appreciate Nature.

Exploring the silence… Including Human Nature

A passage in time offered as sun whispers to the chill in the air.

Allow, each pass of the step to rest in silence

Know when to wait,

feel when to do nothing.

Choice is a subtle key to peace of mind and to success.

Too much speed misses conscious connections

And too slow or distracted attention facilitates opportunities to slip past beyond recognition.

Choose when to wait, intuit when to slow or to stop action;

Know yourself; to which tune do you vibrate?

What is your song of life, who has written it?

How is your state of self-regard, self-approval, self-appreciation?

Senses work for us, as does Nature, trust each moment of every day.

Even the trees rest in satisfaction within themselves, simply being.

“All the thoughts of a turtle are turtle.”

~ Emerson, Journals, 1855 (1803 – 1882)

The gentle winter invited spring just in its middle, and now the Paris cold will disrupt this cycle.  Currently, as weather patterns shift and change, this is the new natural.

“All things come to their fulfilment as the universal Nature directs; for there is no rival to Nature, whether containing her from without, or itself contained within her, or even existing apart and detached from her.”

~ Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 2nd century (121 – 180)
