Perceptions…….

Is there a rainbow or isn’t there? Perhaps a better frame of mind, right now, is that something unique is there and in its totality it is all beautiful.

A cynic’s view….

“…under all the parade of human effort and noise, today is like yesterday, and tomorrow will be like today; that existence is a wheel of recurring patterns from which no one escapes; that all anybody does in this life is live for a while and then die for good, without finding out much; and that therefore the idea is to take things easy and enjoy the passing time under the sun…”   

Herman Wouk, Don’t Stop the Carnival

The sameness, the bland acceptance would be mind numbing. Perhaps it’s the mental state to enter into, in order to endure. But, the craziness of life, of discoveries, falling in love, adventures toward the unknown, the mind alert and creative does not, cannot, abide by such cynicism. We must see ourselves as vital, alive and seeking something beyond the self imposed walls of sameness. Don’t you think……..?

There was a time……

“A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.” Gerald Raftery

In the attic…

of my mind. Memories stored, mostly forgotten now sitting in the dust covered boxes, bins and bags of my life. Some how, along the perilous way, one is able to take the most wrenching, disturbing, offensive, hurtful acts and stuff them into containers and close the lid on them. Out of sight, out of mind. Ah, but are they? No…Out of sight, but always seeking escape beneath the lids. Unresolved, pure acid, destructive to all. ‘Welcome’ can be so deceiving up in the attic of my mind.

Live a little, it’s getting late….

“Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for…a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting.” ~Dr. Seuss

Solitude…

Sometimes solitude is loneliness for a person. Just as often, solitude is a state of mind, an experience we seek to survive, to be away from it all. Both weigh upon our minds, our hearts, our health.

Lines & Shadows…..

I pushed my old Pentax Optio W60 into the net with the trout, beneath the water and snapped this shot. The lines and shadows from the net and the light penetrating the dorsal fin were unexpected. Light, beautiful light. Originally, the main reason I bought the Optio was to experiment with underwater shots for steelhead, salmon and trout when releasing them back, beneath the surface. It has become my backup secondary camera and I have never really used it as anticipated. If I can keep the water around the fish less turbid, at the point of release, I will try more underwater shots.
