… of color rim the inside of this tulip at Filoli Gardens in the bay area … the pollination of the bloom is underway and a bit of a mess ensues, but that is life as we know it. A wee bit messy at times, but beauty will always out … I like the apparent brush strokes on the sides. It seems kind of warm too, and that is comforting as it is low 30’s here, snow and more real winter weather here and on the way. No flying, no boating, so looking through photos that show signs of warmth! This shot was taken on February 26th 2015, by the way, and it was a beautiful, warm sunny day.
I got the photos for the book interior finished today, the cover and the back cover tomorrow and then the writing of text for each photo … things are going well!
The chill is coming through the walls and time for me to crawl under a comforter. Morning comes soon and along with it an ample dose of espresso … first the wake up … breathing … a fabulous day is going to be underway. Have a beautiful day, smile and make someone’s day!
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth
quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit.
— Max Ehrmann
