...the deepest question...

philosophy is powerless
to answer the question,
"why is there something rather than nothing?"
this is the mystery of being,
self-evident but inexplicable.
it's the enigma we can never confront,
because it's forever our dwelling place,
and we're unable to leave it-
nor do we wish to.
there's no better way to
reawaken wonder in every moment.
~1,001 ways to live in the moment

i am at
a lymphedema course
this weekend.
so i am posting this tonight and will
join the fun tomorrow...
when i have a break.
i probably won't get
around to see the other
shadows until Sunday night.
but you head over
when you can.
enjoy your weekend.
just BE.
robin.

The screw sits exposed - does it want to be seated inside the wood or not? With the indecision of this fastener, we are treated to a wonderful shadow. We know that is sits the way it does as it was not installed straight and true - yet we are happy that it has found its place and shadow...

Marvelous shadow shot as always and, as always, beautiful words to reflect on. Wonderful reminders of what is important! Hope your course goes well, Robin!
