“Lucid dreaming has considerable potential for promoting personal growth and self-development, enhancing self-confidence, improving mental and physical health, facilitating creative problem solving and helping you to progress on the path to self-mastery.” – Stephen LaBerge
In the language of flowers the plum blossom means to keep your promise. Although the blossoms are short-lived, the beauty of the flower is everlasting in the eye of the one who was blessed to see and smell it.
“The beauty and mystery of this world only emerges through affection, attention, interest and compassion . . . open your eyes wide and actually see this world by attending to its colors, details and irony.” – Orhan Pamuk
Same flower, same light, different angles, different effects, all green.
Tonight begins a journey with the Lily. Historically, the Lily has represented majesty. In some parts of history it can be found that Lilies of various colors represent something other than, or in addition to, majesty. For example, the white Lily, as I posted last week, represents purity and virtue. Throughout the 2013 Lily series you will see Lilies of varying color as well as black and white images of Lilies. The Lily itself is a magnificent flower. It can be a challenge to photograph, but if you have wonderful natural light, those challenges seem to fade to artistic creation. I hope you enjoy the series and look forward to your comments and feedback.
