Despite exhaustion and pain, a few days ago I determinedly reached for my cameras to immerse into Innocence. God help me, somehow I just wanted to escape this pain and exhaustion so I turned to my camera with super human effort. I happened to photograph some objects in the night sky I honestly don’t have any answers for which in turn leave me wide-eyed in childlike wonder. I have more questions than anything else.
Then on some of my walks weaving wearily yet needing the forest as my fill up option, I’ve come across people that leave me with hope, as in wonder I see the Love Energy emerging stronger and stronger. Most of the time when I am attempting to get a bird, people don’t care and very rudely walk in front of me or keep talking nosily, thus ruining the shot. Not this day. A young couple very quietly waited until I attempted to get a Warbler and then proceeded to walk towards me. I was so impressed I immediately said, “Bless you for respecting me while I am photographing. Most people do not.” They smiled and in turn told me they didn’t want to disturb me until I was finished. Pinch me!
Another encounter of the 3rd kind, I was walking, again weaving with weariness as I gazed at tree tops looking for birds. Intuiting there was someone approaching, I turned and sure enough a young man was coming towards me. Being on a narrow boardwalk, I stood to the edge on one side so he could pass me. He said, “Thank you”, and in surprise and with great respect I said in return, “You are welcome!”. Smiling hugely I was so pleased to see yet again respect shown towards me. For the JOY!
There you have it. The world is not lost. There truly are people who have maintained their decency and integrity and are walking proudly and courageously in love in a world that has gone mad. God bless these people!! It so encourages me to see this. Please do enjoy the show below. The first two pictures are of the night sky. You tell me what you think. I have no clue. The star that I photographed is Arcturus. It was blinking so brightly in the sky that in calling my husband over to observe, he stated, “Oh no that’s not right. What???” How I got the “cross effect” I do not know. And then the three lights in the next picture are of a jet but what intrigues me is what I caught on my frame to the left of the plane that I could not see with my eyes. Another mystery ……
Keep in mind I was handholding my camera and the shutter speed was on the slow side.
Even in Her barren state, Mother is breathtaking …
When I came upon this sight, I just had to capture these two lovelies:
There are now birds, one of the following which is not yet in his Spring colors. The first one is a Song Sparrow and the second one is a Warbler, not yet in his Spring colors.
And of course the new growth and the flowers are all reminding us to return to Innocence:
Those who know how to hold childlike innocence will inherit the earth.
The below video is not in English. I believe it to be Dutch. It is at the 2:35 mark when this little girl begins to sing. You will be covered in goosebumps.
