I don’t know what has happened but this year I smell more. Smell as in my olfactory sense is more acute (what did you think??) and walking through my garden has been like travelling in a perfume factory. My nose has ‘seen’ the flowers before my eyes did and I do wonder how this is, why this year? Aren’t I suppose to smell less as I grow older? Aren’t stress supposed to reduce the sensitivity of your senses? Could it be my brain who (yes there must be a little person in there, like in that film by Woody Allen) has decided that I was missing out on a lot of what was happening and tried to steer me towards it? Whatever the reason, I greatly appreciate it!
Sometimes I am also surprised by how light works on my visual sense, yesterday I took the dog for a walk on a path in the woods, bringing my camera with me but felt completely uninspired as I didn’t see a single thing that made me want to click. Then we turned around and went back and then the magic happened, the light was completely different seen from this direction and everything I looked at was suddenly beautiful and interesting. Light is such a beautiful thing, be it outer or inner light!
Ending on a more prosaic note, as you can see I have reverted back to blogger comments and unfortunately all the comments are gone, once I would have been greatly upset by it but now I regret them being gone and just hope that they might pop up some time in the future. I have the nice feeling of all your comments here inside me and nothing can take that away from me.
And there is no recipe today either, I’m in the middle of a lot of work right now and just don’t have the time but there are a few ideas floating around in my mind and I hope to hav a week off next week so I can dedicate me to Lucullian and my own photography!
