There's nothing like a dynamic red abstract to start off part two
of the August Break postings
in the form of a red double-decker bus
and because my grandson, staying with me, loves it!
Dancing yellow petals in the background bringing a feeling of joy.
A dreamy soft focus capture which feels meditative to me.
Time for a glass of sparkling water with a squeeze of lime juice
"Love is a state of Being.
Your love is not outside; it is deep within you.
You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you.
It is not dependent on some other body, some external form.
In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless
and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form.
You can then feel the same life deep within every other human
and every other creature.
You look beyond the veil of form and separation.
This is the realization of oneness.
This is love."
Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now.
Everyone says that unicorns don't exist,
except in legends and mythology,
but last night I dreamed I was riding bareback
on an amazing silver-grey unicorn.
We galloped through pastel coloured clouds of pink and blue
and I clutched his flowing mane to keep my balance.
I could feel his silky coat against my bare legs and feet.
When I awoke, I really believed in the existence
of these beautiful creatures.
Since I was unable to take my camera with me in my dreams
I found this wonderful unicorn image
which corresponds exactly to the one I rode!

Next week, I'll continue this August Break journey with you.
I hope you are enjoying yourself as much as me!
