Flowerhood and Rolling Solo

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

I saw two sides of flowership today in my walk back to the station in Chiba.  One was a a single budding flower.  It was pushing through between a stone wall and an iron fence.  It contrasted so nicely with the cool gray stone on this overcast day.

The other was a group of tiny purple flowers.  They had all budded and were growing in the tight space between a wall and sidewalk.  There were about half a meter off the main street I was walking on, but there flowerhood caught my eye.  They were all working together in a tight space.

I know that it takes a community to care for each other, just as these flowers were.  They might not be holding hands, but I’m sure their roots are all intertwined under the earth.  Search out those connection to each other.  Those connections that are so vital to humans well being.

Don’t be afraid to show a little flowership, or flowerhood to each other.

Purple Synergy

I went to my public health screening yesterday.  I am thankful that at least one thing the Japanese government has gotten right.  It provides access to health care to all.  However, the air was so stale inside the auditorium it gave me a blistering headache.  Once I finished the screening and stepped back into the fresh air, I felt refreshed, but the headache still persisted.

I took a slow bike ride back home, even through the headache, this purple just spoke to me.  Looking at it made me feel a bit better, I was only able to snap a quick picture, and kept on peddling.

Thinking about how we need to be apart of our surroundings.  We need to participate in our community as best we can.  Learn to live in some harmony.  Seek out the colors that make each community unique.

Clouding Sunning in the Bokeh

Friday, May 13th, 2011

After the last two days of constant, persistent rain the sun finally made an appearance.  The humidity pushed near 100% this morning.  I suspect nature is giving us all a hint of what the summer will be like.

Even though I was born and raised in Miami, I have become fore accustomed to less humid and hot weather, because I haven’t lived in Miami for over 20 years now.  So what I am getting at that I will be baking once that mercury hits 35 (95).

Therefore as the clouds played hide and seek with the sun, I chose to get lost in the bokeh.  The blur that is created by having a shallow depth of field.  The rich colors, blur into the near distance.  The little speckles of life that come alive in miniature.

Loose yourself in color.  Stay aware of the goings on in the world, but don’t forget to touch those colors.

It Only Takes One

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

One seed planted in rich earth is all it takes.  The roots grow into the soil, seeking out nutrients.  Raising up its hands to the shining sun.  Time will tell, and Babylon’s concrete trap will all come falling down.  Go out, plant, reap, and sow a beautiful future for all.
