"For things to reveal themselves to us,
we need to be ready
to abandon our views about them."
I love this phrase because it helps me let go of all preconceived ideas
of what I think things are and how they should be.
With an empty mind and an abstract eye,
I'm able to enter into the essence of a subject.
The image above was taken down by the lake, and what drew me in completely
were the gorgeous dancing reflections on the side of the boat
created by the moving water.
I stayed in this spot for a long moment, just immersing myself
in the beauty and aliveness of what was before me.
and a contemplative mood
All yellow and blue
It was a windy day and the colourful bunting drew my attention
towards the sky.
There's something incredibly joyful about bunting flapping in the wind,
don't you think?
It's true, when we abandon our views
things are revealed to us in a truly magical way.
