147. Tree Lace (Aesthetics 6)

Tree lace (aesthetics)

When the branches of the trees are all bare like this, and you look upwards into the intricate patterns, it almost seems like the skeletal forms are reaching out for one another in a Sistine Chapel vision that would be worthy of Michelangelo. Connections with art inform our sense of appreciation, and the interlacing of these trees against the blue sky, and probably under the ground too, is also part of the world’s beautiful connecting.

146. Dandelion Clock (Aesthetics 5)

The sense of wonder we have already spoken of continues to inform all the other ways of seeing, and perceiving beauty, finding something aesthetically pleasing, is no exception. How perfect is the sphere of a dandelion clock, and how symmetrical and yet tiny, a little planet of starbursts! These are plucked up swiftly by most gardeners, knowing how hard the plant is to remove, but for me they are globes of soft wishes, and delightful to look at.

145. Not Knowing (Aesthetics 4)

DSC00269

Sometimes we find something beautiful without really knowing why, and that is okay. Our inner seeing is often hard to articulate, and it is good to be lost for words. This is one photo I took which I love, but which I can’t (and don’t want to) analyse. It’s just beautiful. Something about it holds together right and pleases me. As with many other areas of our spirituality, often we need to accept that we don’t know, and that this is just a normal part of life.
