Seeking Wholeness

Seeking Wholeness

…a calm afternoon…a tender hour…pale sunlight…bare trees…buds coming out…soft whispering wind…still chilly…all are participating in the observance of a liturgy with no words…for a brief moment, i closed my eyes and deeply surrendered to the unfolding moment…internalizing everything…it felt good and light and decent…and then I opened my eyes…there are no birds in sight…

    Recently, I have been looking at trees. No – really. Seriously looking at trees. Standing beneath their mighty trunks and looking up. Seeing all that time captured in their size. They shed their skin like snakes…..

    Nice picture!

    You captured the moment with brilliance…I feel allowed to indulge my delight and fondness of film noir as expression while acknowledging that this may have been inspired by other less playful concerns…a skillful artist indeed, Viriglio!
