Paradise Lost

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue August. 01, 2019 660 views

Back in the day, when God was still young and beardless he played Sim Earth. He played for six days without a break. In the seventh day he was done - in every true meaning of the word. Meanwhile his file "Garden Eden" was running on autopilot. All went well until a bug - today it's called a serpent - appeared and messed up God's last creation.

If the serpent - the bug - would have been a fly, Eva wouldn’t have taken the apple. We know, what happened afterwards: God started to debug Eden. Adam and Eve had to leave - not well maintained but burdened with some nasty bugs. The serpent had to leave as well, but its feet had to stay behind. The serpent has to crawl on its belly since.

Btw. does somebody know what happened to the serpent's feet? Are they still standing around without a fitting body? Sorry, I should stick with the story. The thing is, I’m quite sure the story about the first emigration without a proper destination was more twisted. I'm sure, until today the story isn't told in all its ugly details.

I also think, the serpent was not a snake at all but a common worm. The treacherous serpent became the obligatory baby worm in the apple. Think about that: Worms misuse apples as a diaper as long as they live inside an apple. Worms live in their own sh*** afterwards they will transform into annoying flies. Disgusting flies, who will now sh*** from the outside on the same apples. In the end an apple appears to be the first Trojan Horse - covered inside out with manure!

Worms and flies ... and still every Adam in the world will enjoy Eva's apple pie. Either God has a strange sense of humor or he really took a long term revenge, because he didn't get the chance to invent and bake apple pie by himself.

It has been a long, extremely hot and exhausting July. Even going for a photo walk was almost impossible, because I had to take care of my parents. No wonder at all, that I developed a mashed brain with half cooked ideas instead. I never expected that taking pictures of a shiny fly sitting on an unripe apple (maybe without an inhabitant) could take me back into Garden Eden.

Love the tight focus, spot lighting, grate colors, super clarity & lovely bokeh.  
So glad to see your fertile imagination is still "alive & well", even considering the extreme temperatures it's having to endure!
Just a few more months & you 'll be shaking the moths out of your woolens for the Fall coolness........Hang in there, Sis!

The weather was just a minor inconvenience, but the overheated people caused as usual problems - including myself after reaching my personal boiling point. grin

I think the Bible would be a better read if there was... perhaps a recipe in each book... maybe a take-away recipe for Exodus?
