Expressing Self Sagacity's moods.

Recuperating from a whirlwind.




Sometimes I feel like this:


And this:



Even this:

And it is okay.

Because at the end, I see myself to be this:

  1. I love your thoughts and this flower, Jo and I photographed once on our forays. I think it is actually a type of poppy - it's petals are like a sheer paper though, blowing in the wind. It seems to grow everywhere!

  8. Original and very entertaining. I do feel like that as well. I have to try hard to think of myself as that last one when it gets really tough.

  9. They are Matilija poppies and are in bloom all over right now. They are glorious and so hardy in addition to what you have expressed :) beautiful shots. They are thriving out here in our botanical gardens and are taller than I am. They can grow up to eight feet tall. I love your photos and mosaic.

    Your photos express it so well.

  21. I was singing along with you but my song was from West Side Story - "I Feel Pretty". That really worked with this pretty flower dancing in her summer frock.

  22. "Recovering from a whirlwind" sounds pretty momentous. Glad that you're finding peace and quiet, which is so beautifully expressed in this mosaic.

  23. @Vee Yes, I must say currently I feel a little bit empty, and it's a great emptiness that I longed for.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Stephanie V Glad you can dance along with the flower, I love to be flexible and bend with the wind like such. :-)

  26. @Judy Sheldon-Walker Ha ha, now that type of whirlwind, I have everyday. My little three year old now will have me spinning within an hour she wakes.

  27. @Maia the mood is that of a dancing flower petal, I am sure you can relate with your photos.

  28. @A Write Life We are unbelievable resilient my dear. No matter what comes, we are still here, and still able to go on.

  29. @JudyI hope that you know Judy, that you can always come back to Self Sagacity and pick off some other emotions too...here the moods change pretty often. :-)

  33. @AL interesting the way you've put it Al, I have to think a bit on that one.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @RNSANE Yes, the flower was dancing in the wind while I was trying to get a straight shot. So even though I was upset at the time that the wind didn't stop, it turned out that I really liked it as it expresses how I felt in the last few months.
