Wooo, hooo! The winds are a-whippin' up on The Path today. I am reminded of the song Tsunami by DVBBS and Borgeous feat. Tinie Tempah. "Stuck in a daze I feel like I'm riding a wave. My life is a roller coaster inside of a maze. (Woo!) I hope it's a phase, I hope it's a, hope it's a phase…" It has a strong drum beat...and here we are in March. Marching on!
Somehow, amongst all the chaos, I am aware of the stillness within the movement. The joy, the beauty, the perfection within the chaos. When we are able access even the tiniest hint of stillness and perfection at our core it doesn't matter how chaotic it is outside. However wild and consuming it may be. We can enjoy the thrill of the movement. We can afford to sit back and enjoy the ride.
Feeling the excitement, I wonder how I can capture the movement of the wind in a picture. Since wind feels like spirit-in-action there is a sense I am trying to capture the un-capturable :-) I can capture the physical effect of the wind on the physical world, the collapsed tree perhaps? But no, that's far too flat for a day like today. Instead, I go with what brings a smile to my face on this fine and windy day. This tree, wearing his Sunday best!
Lots of joy to you all on your own path today…and why not wear our Sunday best everyday! :-))
