Interesting patterns are everywhere. If I only slow down and open my eyes a little I see them. In people too. The way colours complement each other and blend to make harmony pleases my eye and somehow gives me the feeling that all is right in the universe.

It takes a while sometimes to make sense of the pictures I see. Things are often not what they seem at first glance. Something that appears to be molten metal turns out to be water on glass that the winter cold has frozen. I wont tell you how many pictures I ended up taking of ice patterns on that beautiful winter's day..but I sure didn't notice the cold.

I recently took time away from a busy schedule and was on my own for a number of weeks. Something happened that hadn't really had a chance while I was embroiled in the day-to-day of my time-tabled living...I reflected. I enjoyed the experience so much, that I have decided to do it regularly, in between the rest of everything even though I am back being embroiled.

Reflecting seems like it should be peaceful and quiet and meditative, and it was those things but it left me energized and refreshed. Maybe it is obvious, but taking time out to just mull over whatever has been going on in the mind while we've been preoccupied with responsibilities does a good job of clearing the brain-cobwebs.

This photo was taken in a mall in Dresden, Germany. I left my cousin to the shopping and my camera and I spent some time...reflecting.

My heart is mooching around the house in a grey cardigan.

I seem to have misplaced a lot of the things that make it colourful. Things that make it skip. I'd better go and clean the house out and see if I can find them again.

Actually one of the reasons I came in here was because I thought I had something on my mind to say...however, now that I'm typing all I really have is a feeling which I can't put into words. That is a serious limitation since I don't really have anything other than words to work with here.

I never have liked cardigans...and grey isn't my colour. Perhaps that's what I needed to myself. :)
