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