Transcience

I am always dumbstruck watching Sunrises and sunsets.. They have a striking capacity to make us feel simultaneously insignificant and elevated. The aesthetic experience of watching a beautiful sunrise /sunset evokes wonder and awe at nature’s grandeur entry and exit everyday. It’s like turning a page…

The light of the setting  sun casts the world in a gentle, warm orange/purple glow, I think the wavelength of the light could be an important part of our enjoyment.

For those inclined toward deep sensory appreciation, it paints the world with ever shifting shadows that mask and highlight different parts of our surroundings we may not  have noticed otherwise ….

In other words a ” guaranteed show stopper”

Holding on to dear life

Old and withered yet standing tall and strong

While walking down North Maple Ave to take some pictures, I noticed this tree (second photo) holding on to a few leaves and that set me thinking ….

Holding on to dear life-What does it mean ???

Holding on for dear life is our reaction to when life is falling apart, and we desperately need something solid to grab while we weather the storm, so we don’t fall apart too.

We all know that life is constantly changing and nothing is permanent. The phrase can be redefined to mean something else too. There are some things that mean a lot to us and are dear. They give us the comfort and confidence we need to weather any storm – friendship, family, faith, hope, trust, values, morals etc. But we should be ready to let go off the stuff that weighs us down like clutter, guilt, fear, insecurity and anger.

Most importantly, WE SHOULD hold on to each other. We have to hold on, lift each other up, comfort one another.
