A visual journey……
Our Mother who art our beloved earth…Happy Mothers day.
I recently learned about some of Mother Natures amazing creatures via a very entertaining series called: Absurd Planet:
I am in awe of some of the amazing tricks these creatures have to be able to survive in very interesting conditions, which made me think about a character in a Roald Dahl book….
“I thought up secret plans and clever tricks” said the crocodile in the story: The enormous crocodile by Roald Dahl.
1 May 2020: Lockdown level 4 and it is Worker’s day in South Africa.
So let’s say it with flowers 😉
“There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out
But I’m too tough for him
I say, stay in there
I’m not going to let anybody see you
There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out…”
As you can guess, I feel a bit lost right now. I’m also at a loss for words.
So I use or am inspired by words that jump out of a screen. These words were inspired by a Nintendo end game screen message,
but I feel it is also applicable to the world we are living in.
I offer you a bouquet of “flowers” from the ocean.
and I would like to share the following short film featuring: Antoinette Pienaar It’s a film by Green Renaissance:
Enjoy and I wish you a lovely weekend!
