Fall Drizzle

If you want to see a rainbow you have to learn to see the rain.

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.

Old Road

The master observes the world but trusts the inner vision.

The master allows things to come and go, and prefers what is within to what is without.

~ verse 12 Tao Te Ching

Sunshiny Day

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all the obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day.

~Johnny Nash

Camouflage

There's a spider on this tree.

I sat with it for about 10 minutes before I saw it. Then, as I got closer to it to examine its camouflage it further flattened its body out on the bark to blend in better.

Once she relaxed a little I slid in a little closer to check out her face.

I almost always try to look at the faces of insects, spiders, and all creatures because how they see the world fascinates me.

Her perfect blend of camouflage, vision, and strength gave me a lot of inspiration - I also realize I have a long ways to go to perfect my own camouflage.
