The long walk home

When I grew up I lived on a beach in Hawaii and I would often go for a long walk and when I got tired and turned around to go home I would realize I had a long walk home. Now that I am older and seem to be on a spiritual journey I am remined of the times when I was tired and realized I had a long walk home.

Test

Art is a funny thing. I have been trying to put my finger on it for years. What makes a image “work”? This is just a silly picture of a beach but there is something about it that holds my attention. I asked Erica about it and she said it is because the sky is going out and the waves are coming in. I am not sure that is the reason, but why not. I guess in the end it does not matter why; it is just interesting. Trying to figure Art out is like trying to figure out God.…

Yesterday and Tomorrow

It is kinda interesting how people tend to think about yesterday and tomorrow and miss the now. I suppose the problem is no one really know what now is. It is that infinitely small sliver of time between the past and the future. We are sad about the past and worried about the future. What a mess.

Something About The Beach

What is it about a beach that is so attractive? No matter where you go in the world and find a beach there is something so nice about it. Is it the colours, the warm sand the water? It is like beauty, everyone agrees that something is beautiful but no one know why. Or like “life” everyone know they are alive but they don’t know why.

Golden Girl

This looks amazing but in a few minutes the sun will go down and it will get dark and cold and she will go home to her family who are all having problems in life and tomorrow she will be back at her boring job. I hate to have to tell you this… actually I just made it all up. I have no idea what is on her mind.

I wonder what he is thinking

This bird must have something on his mind like lunch or going to the bank or meeting his girlfriend but I have no idea what it is. He looks like he has something important to do but I don’t think I will ever know why he looks so intense. Its kinda sad that our thoughts are so private, nobody know what the other person is thinking. It would be nice to have a quick chat, but I think this bird is too busy to ever talk to me.

Talking about nothing

I am amazed at how much people can talk without actually saying anything important. I bet these guys are talking about how nice it is. When do we ever talk about important stuff? Now that I think about it … what is important? Maybe just talking is important and what you talk about is not so important. That’s nice.

It looks big

The earth looks really big, but when you look at the Earth compared to the sun, the Earth looks small. When you compare the Sun to the galaxy, the Sun looks small. When you compare the galaxy to the universe, the galaxy looks really small. So where does that leave me? At least I can think about all of it and wonder what the hell is going on here.

A penny for your thoughts

I look at people like this and wonder what they are thinking about. I know they have a whole universe inside their little head and its a lonely thought that I will never know what they are thinking. I guess I should appreciate the friends and family I have and stay in better communication with them. I wonder if they ever wonder what I am thinking about. Probably not.

Freedom

There is something about being a bird and just being able to fly away that symbolises freedom. I am not exactly sure what I would have to be, do or have to feel I had achieved a state of Freedom. Maybe I should talk it over with a seagull sometime.

Amongst Friends

I wonder if flowers have the same insecurities I felt in High School. I was around friends but always felt awkward. I wonder if flowers have friends in the garden and I wonder if they have arguments and other silly problems. Maybe I would have been better off being a flower. But it’s kinda crazy because I also think the flower wishes it could be a photographer. Its a problem.

What is beauty?

This is just a flower but as I sit here looking at it I am deeply moved by the exquisite beauty. Of course I can’t just enjoy it I have to start the thinking process as to why it beautiful. What is beauty? Who made it beautiful? Why do I think it is beautiful? For that matter why did my Mom think I was beautiful? Don’t worry, these are just rhetorical questions.

Thinking about the big bang

Its weird how a small human being can conceive of the whole universe and consider what happened since the beginning of time to the present. Who would have suspected this person walking along the beach was thinking about the whole universe and worrying about what will happen when the sun explodes in a few billion years.

Nowhere to Run

When the sun is about to set and I realize that the day is over and I am not going to accomplish what I wanted to do that day I feel sad. Its funny how at the start of the day I think I will get alot done but by sunset I have to acknowledge that it is not going to happen. Oh well there’s always tomorrow. Got to run.

Writing on the tree

Tree bark is usually not very interesting but this looks like some kind of writing. It made me recall the expression “Writing on the wall” which means something is pretty inevitable. I am not sure what the tree is trying to say. Am I missing something?

Could Be Worse

Some days are so beautiful but I know that they won’t last long. This was one of those days and now looking back on it; I am sad that it was over so quickly. I think I need some help to stay happy and “in the moment.” I was not happy on that day because I knew it would not last and now I am not happy because it is gone. What a mess.

Zowee

Nature has a way of making colours that are so stunning that it kinda makes me wonder if someone up there was trying to impress me. Well let me say that I am impressed.

Storm Up North

I know things like clouds and rocks are not alive but sometime they look like they could be people. This was a cloud that looked like a person. I found it weird because it was a storm yet the water was calm. Sometime I don’t understand people and I never understand clouds. Or maybe its the other way around.

Unreal

Once in a while the heavenly shades of night start falling and I feel like I am in a storybook. This happened a while ago and I was lucky to get a photo of the whole thing. Now I need to write a story so I can put the picture in the story book where it belongs.

evening storm

I love a sunny day when the water is clear and the sky is blue. This was not one of those days. But it had its own beauty. It was cold and windy and I could feel the sand blasting on my ankles from the intense wind. I think I prefer the sunny days.

Looking For A Friend

There are some people who are eager to meet and talk to you. When I met this flower it was very enthusiastic to have a chat. I was really busy so I couldn’t stop and talk but it made me realize how rare people are who are willing to open up and be a friend. Now thinking about it, I think I am like that.

Storm Over Melbourne

Did you ever notice that after winter; spring comes for a few days and then it’s back to winter again. Sometimes I think the weather is a lesson in success. You just have to keep going and someday the sun will shine. But in the meantime you get rained on once in a while. But in Melbourne you get rained on all the time.

evening on the gulf

After a busy day I often reflect on what I actually accomplished and realize that mostly what I do does not make any difference, really. So what are we doing here anyway? What’s the point of all this? Kinda makes me wonder what it’s all about. Do you ever think about that kind of stuff?SHOP
