Isolation is upon us.
I’m keeping six feet away from my shadow.
Everyone’s asking pennies for everyone’s thoughts.
Although our mental atmosphere is cluttered, beauty can still be found:
An almost-face with two eye-ball clouds hovering over a scene.
Speaking of almost-faces, here’s an iconic one:
We’re all Castaways now.
I found that face at McClellan Ranch when I took my kids there.
I thought it high time to teach my kids crawdad fishing survival skills.
As always, nature spoke in parables:
We are—all of us—entangled.
My kids continued to fish in the Upside Down.
I looked for beauty in small places: periwinkle.
Then I looked for beauty in big places.
No matter where I looked, I saw something beautiful, even when it was dark and deep.
As we walked to the parking lot, I saw a simple scene: Back to basics.
POSTSCRIPT—although this next picture was taken on a different outing, it’s too good not to share. Not an almost-face, nor a found face, but the real deal. Yes.
