I just saw the most amazing performance by these fine artists from South Africa. It’s remarkable how music can disolve the boundaries between cultures and language when it resonates the universal joy of living and being. These guys do that.
Here he is, folks…the current Columbian heart-throb who packs stadiums full of screaming women all across Europe..Juanes !!! Shown here in mid signature hair-flip, Juanes really has those Latin Lover moves down! I’m going to have to get Hawk to work on how to show sequences; I had a difficult time deciding which frame to show of this revealing little male display ritual….(sly grin, eye-glint, hair-flip, nostril flare….it’s quite a pretty little preen)….which gets the girls squealing every single time. Interesting.
Symbols. One of the great joys of stumbling around this Earth is when you suddenly look around and become aware you have entered the space of a designer who understands Symbols. And Flow. And Space… The site is the UT Brownsville / Texas Southmost College campus. This is such a space. The water symbolizes Knowledge. (And Life. And Civilization….) The architects have incorporated fountains all over campus, without being heavy-handed like at UT Austin.
Last week I had a shoot on the beautiful campus of The University of Texas at Brownsville. That’s where I grabbed this shot. You have to get down on your knees to see it. I love it when temporal, fleeting Beauty makes a last, almost disdainful show before She finally goes back to the Tao….(the “place” where all things come from and go back to) The more I notice these things, the better and deeper my Life.
I’d never really thought about how tough and brutal looking a lily blossom could be until I really looked at this one. The white flower part is tattered and broken. The stamen looks like a club from the Dark Ages…. …and still it’s quite Beautiful.
The plants are doing their annual slow motion dance. It’s Springtime in Newtonia once again. I love it so much. Today, the Red Amaryllis are doing their visual crescendo…what a sight! There are 9 bloom stalks coming out of the pot, and each stalk has at least 4 huge flowers on it! What a neat invention! Yay God!
