I discovered this beautiful area in the most unexpected of places. You can’t tell by this photograph but the area is littered with trash and usually surrounded by heavy traffic.
~The beautiful flower, in all her glory, drinking in the light of the sun, grows uninterruptedly in front of an old apartment building on a side-street in Busan, South Korea. Perhaps, many have walked past her today while she was radiating her uncontainable beauty. What is this beauty that we cannot contain?
She wasn’t fully bloomed and there was some dirt apparent on her petals, at closer look. I contemplated for a moment on the non-doing; the beingness of the flower. The powerfully simple essence of beauty was in and around the flower.
~Four sociable ducks in the glistening water. Drinking in the sun, bathing and socializing while catching a meal.
~ The sun’s light penetrates the forest and illuminates the intricacy of the leafless branches. I believe, adequately compared to the intricacy of the nervous system of the body. And what does this all mean? That we’re all connected, perhaps? And possibly at closer look, a bit more connected to our surroundings than we consciously realize.
Immersed in the forest, enveloped in the peaceful songs of the birds and rustling of leaves and branches in the wind. Drinking in the love from the sun and the fresh air drenched nature.
