I like the phrase, ‘in the mix’. Because it describes how life is, the world is, even the universe! Helen spotted this raspberry plant, hanging on to its fruit, with ivy woven into the background, and a lichen covered stone’
When I contemplate the present situation, it is diffciult sometimes to see a pattern; there are too manythings ‘in the mix’, to try and make sense of it all. But I sense that I’m coming at it from the wrong direction! Perhaps I need to focus on what is in front of me and not over think things.
As I contemplate the photograph above, all the different elements speak to me in different ways; each revealing a different perspective. The quarried stone, shaped by human hav]nd to become the capstone on a wall. The rather tatty raspberries, still proclaiming their presence and in the fruit and seed, holding the potential for new life! The ivy, invasive and abundant and brash; making its own statement about life. The barrier of the fence in the background; expressing the human need to set boundaries.
I’m sure you will come up with your own reflections out of your own experience and observation.
May the Spirit of life guide your musing!
