transit contemplation

by Stormfish February. 15, 2015 2244 views

we are deeply alone within ourself, even if live around us whirls by on a fast track. all the decisions that bring us forward into the future are made by a mind locked into the cage of its own existence, needs, conditions - we will never get out of that until the very end.

but alas, there is imagination. dreams. the quirky unreal slips that captured self allows itself, banging onto the doors of conscience, not giving up on the dull stream of tempo piano LA VIE EST UNE LONGUE FLEUVE TRANQUILLE and nothing stops us from wandering of. floating. be the spirit on the planes, take part in that all engulfing hive the universe has produced; live.

Dylan Thomas would agree! Fabulous shot! Alan Ginsburg also comes to mind.

seems like a great place to practice meditation. she is kinda fascinating to look at.
yes we are slaves to the never ending endless chatter of the mind i suppose. unless we work at ignoring or escaping it as she seems to be.

Good Post. There is a lot to look at and think about.Your words blend well with the image. As viewers we feel confindent that this is not someone who just robbed a bank and making a getaway with the money stashed in the bag while she tries to keep calm and focus on the plan to rendevous with the others at the next stop.....oops sorry Storm I got carried away...

That Fleuve is often not so calm, like most rivers it has quiet zones but also very turbulent ones. Love the picture.
