Since this is my first post of the new year, I would like to wish you Wellness, Happiness and Peace for 2010. My hope is to share with you in this blog more photos that help me think and inspire me.
I love using the macro lens on my digital SLR camera (both gifts from my husband).
Here is a photo I took in July 2009; Visitors piled on a single leaf of my lemon tree in my garden. The green translucent alien-looking creatures were maybe 3 millimeters in length and there were hundreds of them. I feared for the tree but chose to do nothing except photograph them. The next day the only trace that they had been there were the photos I took.
Looking at this picture today, I remembered watching a movie (Microcosmos) with my kids when they were little. I think it came out in ’96 – Around the time I decided to embark on my new life as a homeopath. If you have small children (or if you just have the heart and sense of wonder of a child) I highly recommend an evening viewing in your living room.
The following is a definition of macrocosm from Wikipedia: “Macrocosm and microcosm is an ancient Greek neoPlatonic schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the mid-point is Man, who summarizes the cosmos”
The phrase repeating in my head as I write this is from William Blake and goes something like this “to see the world in a grain of sand…” You can read the whole poem on the internet here.
What is this fascination with capturing my garden and the world around me in it’s finest details? Is it a mirror to the path I walk getting to know myself at every level? I have observed that sometimes that which becomes my subject shies away and tries to retreat from being looked at so intimately. Sometimes however, they look me straight in the lens.
I love Classical Homeopathy and here's my haiku about my practice: Similars do heal - Sit, listen, perceive and love - Transform into being
You and your lens are capturing the essence of life. These are magic moments that can only be experienced and never recreated. They help us reflect on who we are and why we are here and, maybe, where we are going.
