“Any belief worth embracing should be able to stand up to scrutiny. If not, it’s time to release it; let it go.”
― Laurie Buchanan, PhD
I struggled with a quote of this simple image of a Queen Anne’s Lace seed head emerging from its winter tomb.
Then, the image reminded me of a rather painful time in my recent past. One I won’t get into in this forum, but one that caused me to really reflect on what was important in my life, and I came to realize that some of the people and events of the past five or so years had no bearing on my future. They ‘entombed’ me in a sort of stasis as well. Yet, through the outlet of my photography, family, and true friends, I too was able to weather it out, relatively unscathed, much like this seed head.
If I came across it in a meadow, without knowing it had been fully encased in ice, I would not know its full story.
I love the simplicity of the image, yet it triggers such complex thoughts and emotions.
