Roots Abstract

Roots Abstract

Roots can be very creepy, especially when they are freshly exposed from pulling their more photosensitive bits out of the dirt. But these roots, all clean and white and fresh, all squiggly and chaotic, were not creepy. In fact, the longer they were stared at the more fascinating they became.

I found these at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market on Saturday.

Texture

My astrological horoscope for the year says that travel and creativity and growing and learning will be my main focus for 2018. That excites me. Wouldn’t that excite you? Astrologically speaking, I’ve been in waiting mode for quite some time. Years. But that Saturn moving into Capricorn thing that happened last week supposedly cleared the path for me to start moving forward again.

In the past, when my chart called for travel, it usually ended up meaning that someone else was traveling and I was actually house sitting. We shall see what this year shall bring.

Right now though, I’m sitting in my friend’s house, lounging on her pillows and getting my year started.

What does your chart say is in store for you?

What are you up to?

Happy New Year

Sitting in a friend’s house while she is away in Hawai’i, I looked over by the door and saw this still life sitting there on top of the microwave. A round rock sitting on a dried leaf. It spoke to me in some way. Symbolized something. It reminded me of the self portraits I do for the Self Portrait PhotoClub project – I always seem to make an image of a rock in the middle of something – chaotic grasses, flowing water, and now a leaf. I am the grounded earthiness in the middle of everything. It always feels that way.

So I start out the New Year with a self portrait of sorts, and wonder what this year bring.

And you?

Virtual Travel: Jupiter’s South Pole

This image shows Jupiter’s south pole, as seen by NASA’s Juno spacecraft from an altitude of 32,000 miles (52,000 kilometers). The oval features are cyclones, up to 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) in diameter. Multiple images taken with the JunoCam instrument on three separate orbits were combined to show all areas in daylight, enhanced color, and stereographic projection.

Here is today’s eye candy!

I am totally mesmerized by the detail in this image and it does nothing other than stir my wanderlust to travel in space.

At The Night Cafe

At The Night Cafe

When I’m not housesitting I head to The Night Cafe in my neighborhood to wind down from the day and maybe watch a little Netflix. This is one of those neighborhood cafes that people hang out in because it’s convenient and stays open later than all the other cafes nearby, not because of the degree of ambiance, cleanliness, or good food.
