Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen -
that stillness becomes a radiance. --- Morgan Freeman
I stumbled upon this insect in Eureka Springs, Arkansas a few weeks ago. My guess is it's a katydid; however, an entomologist I am not. Still and all, I kept the same pose. We were both still. Me with my camera - bug doing his thing. What we shared was the learned behavior of FOCUS.
An insect lands on a piece of wood and goes to work. With a hungry eye it eats to live. By the same token, I have to work in order to live and eat to stay alive. Have you ever thought of an insect being an architect in the forest?
An architect renders some kind of magnificent radiance - creation it's all around us. All we have to do is be still and be ready to learn. If critters in the forest such as insects, birds, and animals can do all this with the help of the wind, sun, snow, sleet, heat, rain, and drought, imagine what a human can do if people like you and I are still long enough to get closer to nature to learn about the deeper secrets of creativity? Would we depend less on material goods than we think will make us smarter in the business world? Perhaps our mind needs a revision. I think this tree bark is a symbol of space and time encompassing years of creativity by the masters. What's your opinion?
