Monday Judgements and Warnings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEveryone makes the same mistake. They think they get it and can take it in and wrap the juju around them like a blanket, free to walk away as if they captured the thing they just saw.

But trees come with warnings and disclaimers and promises.

And the warnings say don’t look too quick or else you’ll miss our true beauty and the disclaimers say be prepared for our shininess to stay with you forever and the promises say we vow to morph ourselves, in the certain right light, to look like a painting, giving you the freedom to decide which magnificent artist created the yummy glory you allowed yourself to see.

The Only Way To Get This Wrong Is To Not Notice,

    It’s my guess that those beauties were also giving shelter to your gremlins and calming them down a bit. Trees can do that, you know.

    And for some of us, the mothers we can/could trust.

    I was in a cemetery taking pictures this weekend, talking to the residents, and found some geese there that sounded like they were muttering to each other and until I knew there were geese, I was momentarily worried that the residents were talking back to me. I will admit that it was a profound relief to find geese instead. I also was giving praise to the grand trees in the place, some of whom were putting on such a display I could barely take enough pictures. I put a hand on one of the giant old trunks, like the leg of an elephant, and thanked it profusely for all the pleasure I was taking from it.
