photoblog image Look!

Look!

Look there! Did you miss it? It's beautiful, and you may never see its like again.

Look again. It's small, and hidden among the cares of life. Look closely: it has many colors, like a multi-faceted jewel, glowing in the sunlight. It is precious, like the fluff of a dandelion. It is small but strong, like a spiderweb. It is like an invisible rope: you can throw it into the air, way, way up high, and snag a passing star, and go for the ride of your life.

Look there! Do you see it? Squint your eyes if you have to, get out your magnifying glass if you must. Take all the time you need to find it. Put everything else on hold to locate it. Be diligent. Be fearless.

Look there! Will you miss it? Be alert. You ask, what is it?

It's your treasure. What else could it be?

I think you found a faerie, Larry (hey, I like the rhyme!). It surely made you wax eloquent. smile
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Ginnie. Oddly enough, I wrote this about a month ago and took the picture about four years ago and was not consciously connecting the two. Funny how the mind/subconscious works, isn't it?

You captured autumn with your eyes larry. I am going to miss summer.
Larry Bliss: Soon the leaves will be that wonderful shade of brown again, Ada, and I will be happier than a pig in, uh, slops. wink

I say very often, you may even have I already say that, the simplest things are often the most beautiful!
With this picture, you prove my words ...
Good shot, Larry.
Larry Bliss: There is indeed great beauty in simplicity. I am glad my picture touched something in you.

this is lovely. the words and the picture are a work of art.
Larry Bliss: Thanks for your encouraging words. I may try something like this again.
Great shot Larry, just beautiful !!!
Larry Bliss: I held my breath as I took it, because it was windy that day and I was afraid I would lose it any second.
