"Places speak to us. They inspire writing, thoughts, art, a personal change, & more. You return to that place over and over again because you know it has a language of its own and that the place will ‘say' something to you."
the line is from the introduction to the edition - and made me go and browse the places i feel drawn to, places i have blogged about before already: Mallorca. Lanzarote. and right now, the 100 days project. this place of shared creativity and inspiration. each of the images in the collage developed there, and my string of contributions there is very much about places i've been to, seen from a new angle (here's the blog link: 100 days of daily photos - p art ici patio n).
which place to pick? i went to the garden, to find the answer there, under the open sky, with the hands close to the earth, while tending to the flowers, while visiting the new petals. and then i knew: this place - right in front the door, part of every day here, small compared to the islands of Mallorca and Lanzarote, tiny compared to mountains, is actually the place that inspires me continually, on an unspectacular, but vivid and daily basis. here some moments from the blog:
at this time of day.
this morning, while taking the photo,
the tupils made me think of a quote from India
- an advice for life, symoblized by lilies:
open to the light. close to the darkness.
