Sometimes, a blurry picture causes more focused thoughts and feelings than a focused one..
Sunset walk by a quiet lake, with the breeze blowing in your hair, hills looming in the distance, and the sky filled with silver-lined clouds as far as you can see. A wonderful ambience, and an instant pick-me-up!
Gently lapping water — despite seeming benign and being constantly pushed back by the land, it endures and keeps pushing back until entire coastlines are eroded away….

Getting lost in a pattern, mindlessly tracing its intricacies, is weirdly relaxing, wouldn’t you say? If I trace one of the paths in here, I’ll end up tracing one more, and another. I’ll notice patterns begin to emerge from within patterns, and start observing textures in detail, until I realize time just flew by, and so did some of the day’s annoyances! 🙂
In the glow of the full moon at night, it’s not difficult to imagine the magic (and spookiness) around us.
