Still Learning To See

More of the picture



The term “web of life” barely begins to get at the world I live in, and it is certainly one, even if appreciated, that is way beyond my comprehension. As is the case with my own very small part of the larger world—my body, which knows how to breathe without me having to do anything—that world also “spins” well all on its own. Of course some see the hand of God there, okay, while others understandably puzzle out the mystery with the tools of science. Honestly many times I revel in just not knowing!

Regardless, as the days lengthen here in the North Country, the increased energy the sun provides fuels amazing changes.


Certainly the Spring ephemerals are a delight to find and see, and just past them, and under and around, is more of the picture. And more. And much, much more.


No one would ever believe me if I told them about it or showed them what I am seeing! I find much of life astonishingly impossible. Especially this time of year and even more so in these weird times of dealing with a new facet of life for humanity.

    Great collection of images in our world John. It is always good to see what you come up with next. The mystery of our lives is always unbelievable and I hope God leads us back to a more normal existence. Thank you so much.
