There is a fracture in a windowpane above Gordon’s side of the bed. It has always been there; well, since before we moved into this 5O+ year old house ten years ago.
The glass is cold. I tentatively trace the uneven indentation for the first time, with my finger.
All these years lying in the bed beneath and never did it occur to me to touch it, until this moment. Curious how we can see something for years, but avoid really connecting with that thing, thought, person, emotion. I don’t know the story of the crack. I’m not even sure of what the story of never touching it before now is (or if there really IS a story), but it is interesting to contemplate, what draws us to something, what we feel indifferent about, and what repels us.
Curiosity opens us to awareness. Awareness opens us to alternate possibilities, answers and questions we may not have considered before. Thank you small fracture in the window for being my muse today, for inviting me to take a second look and a third, for not cutting my finger as I traced you, and for being too illusive to photograph so that I am left with a bit of mystery to steep myself in today.
And now for something completely different…
the mysterious back of my head!!!
Fresh haircut and luscious red color, ‘cause a girl’s gotta have fun! “Hair-therapy”, does wonders for body, mind, heart, and soul! I wouldn't want you should think I'm always serious and don't know how to play. It seems my posts have been pretty heavy of late and not a complete representation of my wholeness. Yes friends, I have a zany side...the flip on the bottom is actually a stripe that is redder in real life, (like too red for real life!) than it appears in this self portrait. I think the flash washed it out a bit, oh well. And a close up of my pixie ear, and yes a matching red stripe in the bangs. (no make-up, because what would be the point with all that color on top???)
And since it's Macro Monday, and I'm feeling kind of silly:
