Meditation & Photography

I find at times it nearly impossible to clear the mind and to live in the here and now, I have always been the type of person to either be stressing about things that have not happened yet or stewed over and regretted things in my past.
 
For most of my life I have struggled with the ability to appreciate beauty and magic of the moment that I am living in, even though this has been a conscious effort and desire for as long as I can remember.
 
Recently I have been getting more involved with a passion that I have also had for years, Photography !
 
I have always enjoyed the artistic side of life and wether it be through my poetry, paintings / drawings or now through my photography, I have always tried to explain to the world what I see and what I feel. This hasn't always been easy as I do have an unusual perspective on life at times and have always viewed the world around me as if I was watching a TV show, detached and yet engrossed !
 
With the photography I have found that as one of it's benefits, I am forced to focus on the here and now, that moment directly in front of me and the story that it is telling me.
 
To be distracted is to miss the opportunity !
 
Below are a few photographs I have taken recently, I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed living in and capturing the moment.
 
Cheers

Small Things can certainly offer huge satisfaction, this small flower ( no bigger than a little finger nail ) was growing along side the path at Curtis Falls, Mt Tamborine.
 
Very proud of this Macro shot.

  1. HEAR YE! O HEAR YE!! This’ll help immensely on your journey Upstairs and, believe-you-me, why would you want anything else?? Why should you love our exploded plethora of produce which’ll plant the seeds for you to grow to great heights?? PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK:

    Greetings, earthling. Not sure if we're on the same page if you saw what I saw. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s Big-Bang’s gonna be like for us if ya believe/accept: meet this ultra-bombastic, ex-mortal-Upstairs for the most blatantly, tastefully, incomprehensibly phat… catch-22-excitotoxins… myriads of cogently-ironic-metaphors… sheer guhroovaliciousnessly-delicious-endorphin-rush with pleasure-beyond-measure to boot… Ultra-Firepower-Idyllic-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, point-blank, kick-ass, party-hardy-friction (plus tantalizing eroticism), robust-and-risqué-play-station voltage, eternal-real-McCoy-warp-drive you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-rrrock’nNsmmmokin’-hot-deal: PLEASE KEEP HANDS/FEET INSIDE THE RIDE UNTIL WE MADE A CIRCUMFERENCE OF the OUTSTANDING, NEVER-ENDING, THRILLIONTH-RED-MARKER-POSSIBILITIES …with eXtra eXciting eXtroverts doing the most vivid, brazen conGROOnts: flawless as pearls from the Toyster Upstairs!!!

    WAIT!! THAT’S NOT ALL!! TELL’M WHAT THEY’LL RECEIVE, JOHNNY!! In that insane landscape of tumultuous, Led-Zepplin-versatility, can’t forget the rogue/vogue oasis of ‘Beavis ’n Butthead’ thoroughbred metabolism: from Level One, nuke’umNblast’um avatars in your ninja suit -to- skiing down a black-diamond-mountain 10X higher than K2 in shorts -to- bungee jumping from the troposphere -or- love making in a tree house high above for yeeers and yeeers with every, single, delicacy in your infinite mind, etc, etc, etc (all possible and gobs mo). So, gain altitude, not attitude, and take front-row-seats, miss gorgeous, as the inexhaustible, irresistible intimacy shall blow-your-fragile-mind to peaces. Meet me Upstairs. Do that for us. Cya soon, girly, which blows-away Dumb ‘n Dumbr.
