Dead Rose June 14, 2017 at 01:15PM

I find beauty in death. It is only one phase of the great circle. Most people see a dead rose, I see a pregnant rose, full of seeds for the future. It is only a transition, like a caterpillar into a butterfly, the rose is in transition from a flower to a seed pod, and then, into a thousand rose plants with flowers of their own.

Chrysalis June 12, 2017 at 12:31PM

So, As this was a discovered chrysalis, and I am not a lepidopterist, I cannot properly identify this as the chrysalis of any specific type. …

That little ball of spiky stuff is the remains of the caterpillar skin. I will watch this and see if the adult ever emerges. With luck, I may catch some action in a little while.

Looking into the Red Lantern Tattoo shop on a second floor in Hillcrest, from street level, across the street.

I felt like revisiting some earlier work.

I love flowers in groups of random castings, as if some browinian motion of the universe caused them to dance together. 🙂

I have become the focuser of energies. 😉

A Bonzai for Janet.

Janet asked me to go to the Del Mar Fair Grounds Bonsai gathering. I could not go, so I made this for her because she is my longest time friend.

We have to keep our friends. 😉
