Return is the movement of the Tao. Yielding is the way of the Tao. All things are born of being. Being is born of non-being.
Sometimes seemingly random items catch my eye. When I noticed this open coconut laying on the ground something drew me to it. Maybe it was the contrast of textures and colors? The rough, fibers of the husk surround the smooth interior of the coconut shell and the rich brown shell encases the milky white remains of the nut.
The late afternoon sun coming through my kitchen window provided an opportunity for a different perspective on a popular, refreshing soft drink. You might even say this brand is a piece of Americana. The marketing behind this beverage is so incredible, you’re sure to recognize it despite the fact the label is obscured and the bottle cap is completely out of focus.
During a hike I noticed this piece of bark resting on stones by the side of the trail. I was initially intrigued by the texture and patterns in the bark itself. My first thought was to get a close up of the texture but when I noticed the bark was sitting between two shadows I thought it made for an interesting forest still life.
