Thinking Out Loud


Everything is in a state of constant flux.


I was watching the light bouncing off this canal,


and along came this stick


to add to the shimmering surface.


It was like 'watching' a fireplace.


You know, how one can be taken away......


It was the stick that brought me back this time.

    1. Thanks Fiona. Today that canal would be frozen but last weekend it wasn't. Our Marches are usually up and down like this.

  5. It great to take the time to get lost in a trance every now and then.
    There will always be something to bring you back. So go ahead, get lost!

  6. Some things can just take over your brain and hold your interest without trying. Good Morning, Mal

  8. I believe that we all came--eons and eons and eons ago--from water and so it has the power to mesmerize us and to bring us back to ourselves. Thank you for posting these evocative photographs.

    Peace.

    1. I think you are correct Dee. I just got back from the beach and it was churning up waves like you can maybe imagine. I just stood there and stared. It WAS mesmerizing.

  9. Your post reminds me of last fall when I stood in my yard watching the leaves fall. They had frost on them and were falling like snowflakes as the sun warmed them. They were so beautiful, and I could hear them as they would land on the ground. I've no idea how long I watched, but it was a mind-clearing, mesmerizing moment.
