Everything is Made of Light

'Eveything is made of light,' he said,
 'and the space between isn't empty.'

Meri said...

Steven: Aren't ranunculus amazing? I love how many layers of ruffles they have. The remind me of ballerina tutus. And I just had to play with my new camera. There are some kinds to work out and I think for closeup shots, I'll have to use a different lens.

Maggie: Isn't it a splendid color? And I love the little buds about to pop in the background.

Very pretty !!!

I saw some ranunculus in London today, but they weren't as splendidly and brilliantly colored as these. Did you take these pictures in Mexico? (Don't you think these are Mexican colors?)

Wonderful words, too.

To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life.
But to feel the affection that comes from those whom we do not know, from those
unknown to us, who are watching over our sleep and solitude, over our dangers
and our weaknesses -- that is something still greater and more beautiful because it
widens out the boundaries of our being, and unites all living things.

Pablo Neruda

your incredible photos give me pause for deep reflection.

thank you
