Roses, Cats, and Sheep

Art and Haiku - A Wonderful Combination

 

“Every good idea and all creative work are the offspring of the imagination…. The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable.” ~Carl Jung

I've written several Haiku poems years ago, although I didn't keep copies of them.  Early this morning, I started to write a new collection of them.  I now have eight of them and I expect to have more before the day is over.  I am going to make an endeavor to include my poetry with the art and fractals that I share on this page.  I hope that will allow you to enjoy this website even more.  Here is one of my Haiku that I wrote today:

Space

vacuous space clouds
floating in the universe -
cosmic dust and gas

To Some, Mathematics is Alien


 "In its efforts to learn as much as possible about nature, modern physics has found that certain things can never be “known” with certainty. Much of our knowledge must always remain uncertain. The most we can know is in terms of probabilities." ~@ProfFeynman

The idea I had for this piece of art is "alien professor teaching mathematics hyperrealistic."

Looking At Forever

"Only love gives us the taste of eternity."
~Unknown

It is only spring and temperatures have been in the high 80s (Fahrenheit).  I hate to think about what summer will bring.  I am thankful for air conditioning and ceiling fans.  I must always be mindful of those who do not have that luxury.  Today, it's at a nice 72 degrees.  I have not looked at the forecast to see how long that will last, though.

Thoughts About Friday the 13th on the Day After


"On the Sixth Day, God created man, the sort of result you often get when you go in to work on a Saturday."  ~Robert Brault

If you read my blog post from yesterday, May 13, 2022, you'll have noticed that I wrote about a bird flying into our window and how I found out that according to ancient belief, it means that death looms near.  I didn't stop to think that it happened on Friday the 13th until today, the day after.  That makes it an even more grim experience.  I guess it's a good thing that I'm not superstitious!

Free as a Bird


"If you become a bird and fly away from me, I will be a tree for you to come home to."
~Unknown

Right before posting this, a bird flew into the window and hit the glass.  It startled me.  I thought I'd look for a quote online about birds flying into windows, and I came across a belief from ancient times about how when a bird flies into a window, it means that death is looming near.  I really hope that doesn't happen.  I am not really superstitious, although I do love folklore.  I hope the bird isn't hurt.

The Fractal Nature of History


 "History is fractal. The closer you look, the more complicated, yet always repeating patterns."
~Ted Nelson

Finding the Way


 "The soul has a hidden abyss untouched by time and space."
~Johannes Tauler (Sermons)

I know I said I'd post more regularly to this blog, so forgive me for having gone a while again without posting anything.  I was taking a break from making fractals.  But, it seems that the fractal season has returned, and I am back to making them.

I've gone from being an agnostic to joining the Episcopal Church.  For a very long time, I was turned off from the Christian faith because I saw how a lot of fake Christians treated others.  There was so much hypocrisy.  What I like about the Episcopalians is that they follow Jesus and try to act like Him.  They seem to be respectful of other beliefs and preach about the Way of Love, teaching everyone to be kind to others.  I find this to be very important.  I believe that no matter a person's beliefs, ethnicity, gender, age, etc., we should treat them with love.  My husband John is an Episcopalian, so finally, after almost seven years of being together, I can join him in his faith.
