DAY 273

"The rose is without why, it blooms because it blooms,
It pays no attention to itself, asks not whether it is seen"


Angelus Silesius

I´ve been a long time without thinking of this quote which I read long ago as student and also because it was one of the favorite quotes of Jorge Luis Borges, and I was very fond of his books when I was much younger

But while I was editing the last photos I took in the park, and I saw this one it came clearly to my mind as a sort of epilogue of a previous post. This way my photo walk, my current musings and my past learnings have shown themselves beautifully connected

In this case, what triggered this connection was the back story of this photo: when I arrived to the small garden of roses inside the park, I found that most of the roses were ruined due to high temperatures, but amid the chaos of burnt petals and dry buds, this rose was flowering peacefully and caught m
y attention

This happens to me more often every passing day. I am doing something and suddenly I find out a new nexus between two things previously independent, and this is an awesome mode to understand the beautiful harmony of my path 

There is a short of clever symmetry that goes through all the events of my life and makes them relevant in a given moment, no matter what I thought about them before. Things seem to be constantly moving and acquiring new meanings as I go into this journey in depth. It´s amazing  

It´s like all the random episodes, the important events, the accidents, the traumatic experiences, the mistakes, the miracles, the coincidences and so on were fitting in a biggest plan. It´s a wonderful feeling 



Does this happen to you, too?

Yes, it most definitely happens to me!! Also, with all the thousands of photos that I have in my portfolio I can pull up any one of them and tell you the backstory of each and every one....they are all more than a 'shot' to me. That is one of the reasons behind my own little 75 photo project....to write those little things down so other people can share the whole memory with me ;) So glad you stopped by and said hello!!!

Yes things sometimes come together in strange and wonderful ways. With your flower you were open to finding the beauty in the day. Some people would have only focused on the rest of the ruined roses. Your positive expectation, flower and photo all seemed to come together in beautiful harmony. Thanks for stopping by, now following you too, Laura

This is so true. Sometimes all it takes is to look at the same situation from a different angle and voila, we get a glimpse of a beautiful, blooming rose in the midst of burnt petals
