Confidence in nonsense is a requirement for the creative process

acceptance..


Mysteriously, wonderfully, I bid farewell to what goes, I greet what comes; for what comes cannot be denied, and what goes cannot be detained.
-Chuang-tzu

days and nights are currently blending into light streaks..
the colors are barely there..
the shapes are invisible..
in the landscape of life these days are the plateaus
flat.. undulating..
hot days..
cold nights..
slight winds..
cloudy skies..
but not gloomy
nor happy
the color is maroon
it exists
but has no identity..
there’s no sadness..
nor joy
life just is.
for now.

The photo is an oldie taken at Huntington Beach, CA

  3. That is such a splendid photo!
    The blueness strikes me the most this hot afternoon and what wouldn’t I give for a dip in the cool water… sigh.

  5. I really love what you’ve written, Dhaami, it reminds me of things I’ve lived, things I’ve been through. And I love the picture, too. Pretty colors and composition!

    Beautiful creamy golds. Love the pitch on the horizon line; it enhances the surreal-dream tone of the image.

  7. This is a post to add to my favorites. Love both the words and the picture (crooked horizon and all…I like it that way). I like the colors and how the sky and land seem as one, blending together with the ocean coming between. It’s like the past and present and the ocean (acceptance) with new life comes in between tying them together beautifully. Great job!

  8. Looking good. But wonder why you did not straighten the horizon. ! been a while and we havent connected. Visit back and i think i need to add you in my read list. Keep missing your blog otherwise.

      Yes, it’s been a while. I have been meaning to comment since your photos of the ship which landed on bombay shores.. As far as the horizon goes.. it didnt bother me so it stayed. But I’ve been reprimanded for crooked horizons quite often πŸ™‚
