There is a planetary alignment in the skies this week.
No, I am not predicting a doomsday scenario.
And neither am I an expert on what it really means.
But I noticed that a part of my body got swollen
the way it did 5 years ago.
It is not painful and I am pretty sure
that it will return to normal like before.
But since our bodies are energies and water
it tends to react to how the universe swirls!
We had extremely HOT and rainy episodes this week
that made a lot of people vulnerable to sickness
so I keep reminding myself to drink lots of water
let go of petty arguments
and laugh at life and yourself.
And these images were not taken in the skies.
These were taken while I was doing an art session with kids
and I had to shoot fast while balancing a 3-year-old in my lap
and with kids talking all at the same time
and messy little hands are all over me! ;-)
These images came from the kids lava lamp
that adorn their pretty room
and distract us from time to time ;-)

When changes seem to distract us
learn to let go,
go deeper into yourself,
and look at the world
with kinder eyes . . .

Lui, these are wonderful images and so perfect for your post. I totally agree with you about the weather and our bodies. If you really pay close attention there are definitel changes, both good and not so good.

Thank you for being with us today at The Creative Exchange.

I wish you a beautiful Monday, and week ahead!

Lava lamp -- I never would have guessed! How did you ever managed to get those fascinating images with a kid in your lap? Lovely post -- I especially like your last bit about looking at the world with kinder eyes. Have a good week!

Very cool pics - I thought they were balloons with an eery light! You are right about letting go and looking at the world with kinder eyes. I too have had weird ailments - nothing serious but something new.

My three children are in their 40’s but I can remember the era of the lava lamps. They loved them. The shots you got of the movements are awesome. It is amazing you were able to take such wonderful shots while holding the baby. genie
