End of Days

Vacation days that is.


I’m posting a generic closeup of a flower I took a few months ago, so that I can come back and look upon it someday to gauge the remarkable progress I’ll have made by then (I am nothing if not an optimist.) That and I like closeups. It’s their abstractness that is so…. abstractly appealing. But composition is evidently not a forte here.

I was reading somewhere that photography is all about light, but I don’t think that’s true. Perhaps it’s the musician in me, but I think it’s also all about timing.

More to the point of my reflections on life of late, is this from Proverbs:

Hear, for I will speak excellent things. The opening of my lips is for right things. For my mouth speaks truth. Wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness. There is nothing crooked or perverse in them. They are all plain to him who understands, Right to those who find knowledge. Receive my instruction rather than silver; Knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies. All the things that may be desired can’t be compared to it.

Proverbs 8:6-11

Words of Truth, bringing life and peace… these should limn our lives.
