imagination…

a little world, all its own. A simple weed/plant in the woods with so many clinging water droplets. I took a not too exacting macro shot of a couple leaves of the weed.

Thistle

‘What we sow in youth we reap in age;
the seed of the thistle always produces the thistle.’

Guffaw! Giggle! Smile at least……….

“I love people who make laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”  Audrey Hepburn

Laughter is the best medicine? Tears running down your face, gasping for breath, serious wrinkles around your eyes from smiling so much, guffaws, side splitting laughter, jiggle that belly, a chuckle, a giggle. It all soothes the brain, the heart, the negative vibes.

What portion of us are addicted/dependent to prescription drugs, taking anxiety/depression meds, consumed by food or alcohol or the weed or gambling or porn or negative agendas? Laughter in all its variations will take the edge off all that mental baggage. Did your brain loosen even a little bit reading this?

Nature Takes Back…Simplicity is Golden

garden bench cottage SB

Once contained and well groomed, the grass now reaches out to mingle with the weeds and flowers. Life has only so much time in order to sort out all the must do’s. A jumbled life even less time. Whether in our minds, our bodies or our gardens, the much sought after tidiness can disappear if one turns one’s back. Soon the beauty starts to fade, then….. Simplicity is golden.

Bull Thistle: So Invasively Appealing

 

Eurasian Bull Thistle, an invasive ‘weed’ now happily anchored in all 50 states, Europe, Africa, and Asia. I took this photo while camping at Walton Lake in Central Oregon.

The ‘weed’ is believed to have arrived in Colonial times. By the late 1800’s it had moved across the U.S. With some reputed medicinal purposes, it still is viewed as a nuisance. A somewhat attractive nuisance…as many nuisances are. I enjoy some macro work when in the field although I do not spend nearly enough time with the details of the shot. I am more the see it…shoot it photographer.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
