As I´ve already said I am developing a 52 weeks project. I am sharing this project with a group and this week´s theme is flowers. This group challenges us to upload new photos and not to use only pictures from our archives. As I don´t want to be overburdened with a very complicated task, I want to publish only one original picture every week, not more. However, I have to take many of them to select just one. To tell you the truth, I am not sure that this really simplifies the process (I can be so very indecisive!), but certainly, this is making it more interesting.
I´ve been paying attention to the flowers all week long (another benefit of this project), trying to capture what I see and mainly, enjoying their beauty. I have now lots of them: they are either tiny and modest or exuberant; bright and colorful or subtle and pure; exotic or humble and shy. I don´t even know the name of some of them, and I have a few nice takes, but finally, I decided to edit and publish this one. And of course, my selection speaks volumes about who I am... and not only about my aesthetic orientation
And what does it say? Let me tell you:
I truly believe that beauty is an inner quality that has nothing to do with age, shape, or any other preconceived characteristic. It´s all about the combination of some unforeseen elements that create a pleasing and charming effect
I have struggled hard to see perfection in things that are allegedly imperfect, and I have discovered that this is a source of the constant amazement which precedes joy
I have come to terms with myself: I am going to try to walk with ease my own path, living in harmony with what it is
No matter if I would imagined this moment was going to be more easy, less painful, different... I am determined to live it anyway, I won´t escape. I will accept the inevitable and -depending on circumstances- I will fight if necessary. But in any case, I´ll try to keep my dignity
Life unfolds freely and beautifully from a stage to the following. I am sure that every one contains a treasure, a gift, an opportunity even when any of them can be potentially adverse or delightful. Indeed, I have realized that it´s like a never ending (and awesome) sequence of steps and movements and the only thing I can do is dance in unison with the stunning energy which goes through everything
