On the run, so a quick message this week. I was leaving Wakodahatchee Wetlands at dusk, recently, and from the distance noticed an interesting image in the rear window of the guard's jeep parked in the lot. Coming closer, I saw it was a reflection of the outside environment rather than something in the jeep itself. When I noticed the imagery in motion as I walked, I grabbed my iPhone camera to video it. Thus, today's photos.
Switching conversations for a moment, this is the same parking lot from which I photographed the "Caged Sunset" a couple of years ago. Those photos and queries make up one of the featured essay
s in the current issue of Buddha Chick Life. Included amongst the 11 other postings is a link for a podcast by SARK and a section on THE POWER OF SILENCE from Sara Avant Stover's Book, The Way of the Happy Women: Living the Best Year of Your Life
. There is also the opportunity to be the winner of a giveaway for the book. See Buddha Chick Life
for it all.
Today's Picture to Ponder Photos -
The top photo is obviously reflections in the window of the side front. Though that's not what grabbed my attention, it's a more interesting photo than those I got on my camera of the rear window.
The lower photo is a screen shot of the first view in the video. Looking at the side rear window you can see the above-noted image.
Self-Reflecting Queries -
Today I invite you to look around you and find an object or scene that seems static. Then move passed it and around it if you can. Notice what shifts. Lights? Shadows? Shapes? Are you bringing new eyes to it?
Then, is there a situation in your life where you feel stuck? If so, I invite to look at that also, again, from different angles.
Some of the motion in the window image above came from its reflecting the leaves moving to the whispers of the wind as I stood still. Other movement in the "scene" was a result of the shifting of my camera and my body.
Back to your situation - Can you see any spaces for movement, perhaps from outside of it and you?
As always, have fun, and please share on the blog what comes up for you.
