…imperfect beautyAs I place my nose against its form, touching and squeezing its imperfect beauty: my senses tell me that the taste and texture within this tomato is going to be superb… My life’s maturity tells me so.  Year after year…decade over decade…I have sought to find my own technique to master the art of discovering true beauty.  I use this metaphor as my philosophy across the board of my life.  The visual exterior of any object or being… is only a mask of first impression…  engaging and unearthing the substance of what lies within… defines the true essence of what is seen.

… discover the beauty within

…it was a rainy day. We did not know the direction of the weather until late afternoon.  Then…just like magic…the rain subsided…the sun appeared…joining our thankful hearts.  We were granted once more…a magnificent “Summer’s End”.

…It is supposed to rain tomorrow.

I can’t believe that with all of the past rain these Annabelle’s with their fragile stems and huge mopheads/flowers continue to flourish in happiness. As a matter of fact they are my most beautiful bounty every.

So I needed to capture this, this evening …for tomorrow night many may be resting on the earth’s floor having been overwhelmed by the strength of the elements to come.

…it is different this year. A number of mornings since arriving… in front of CedarCliffe I hear the rumble of a tug pushing a barge south… holding cargo of rock to be used to support the bank of a neighbor. That evening the rumble returns as the barge slowly pushing north…empty of her cargo…back to the Bayfield Harbour.
