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……..?

Simple Fascinations & Observations

It is a simple observation that many of you can see a palm tree outside your window right now or get to one within minutes. But for me, living in the Pacific NW of the U.S., a palm tree is a rarity. Perhaps our fir trees, alders and ponderosa would be an oddity for you if visiting Oregon?

I just enjoy that visual experience, when traveling, of unique vegetation (Joshua trees, palm trees, cactus, Sycamores, Bougainvillea). It is a simple observation, an obvious one, but fascinating still. Our mental ruts are altered in a pleasant way………..

Palm Fronds: Victory, Peace, Eternal Life

Palm fronds are somewhat unique to most of us unless we visit more temperate climates. I am sure many in California or Florida don’t give them a second look. The symbolism of palm fronds transcends modern introductions of the tree. The symbolism of the palm frond goes far back in history.
