light the darkened path before,
love's surrounding me...
I'm not sure if I've used this image before but no matter I love it so I'm going to put my spin on it today. What it is throwing up for me, how it expresses my mood, how it serves as a tool for meditation and the creative flow. Yes this is the great thing about fine art photography it becomes a medium for self-expression at any time...
From personal meditation and visiting wise words on-line this inspirational phrase keeps circulating in my head "we are exactly where we need to be in the moment". This concept is not something new to me I came across it a while ago, the notion of being exactly where I need to be at any given moment in my life! Previously I'd always thought I had or should have control over my life and therefor could work things out, my destiny was self-made. Nowadays I realize just how little control we really have...
What the picture throws up today ~
As you may realize it is a water reflection of dark woodland but the trees are illuminated. You might feel a little disorientated as the picture is upside down! This up-side down feeling is one I am only too familiar with since I lost my partner, my world is so topsy-turvy, I feel like the old ricocheting screen saver (if anyone can remember it?) I'm all over the place with little stable ground to tread on as I try to make serious decisions about my future.
The image though is speaking to me, that yes I am maybe walking through a 'dark night of the soul but, I am actually 'where I need to be' at this hour and not alone. The stability of the large strong trees is reassuring me of their protective presence, their luminosity surrounds me with light, supplying me with what I need for the journey, strengthening and lighting my pathway.
