Sea of Joy

The next post is going to be intense. It’s the opening round of the thesis conclusion, from the razor’s edge to the power of the circle. It usually takes about a week to work on the text and create new images for each post. No. 63 will take a bit longer.

Meanwhile, I’m seeking respite in a carnation transformed. The original scan is from 2005. The actual flower was green. Not the dyed kind, but the astonishing kind you see naturally in zinnias or luna moths. She and I have been partners in multiple variations, including a few valentines, of course. Float on, little flower, float on.

    Beautiful image! love the many variation of blues

    • Hello, Susan, and thank you! I’ve been deep in the contemplative mode of wrangling with “big ideas.” The blue carnation was such an attractive alternative to getting any writing done, I had to replace it on the desktop with a less magnetic image. ^_^
