~ BRING GRACE TO EACH DAY~
Even as day turns to night~again the sun rises with all
possibilities in the new horizon. The bright light inspires an
evaluation~~and revaluations throughout a creative day.
Choosing carefully with the Sun's illumination,
I search the wilderness~~see the potential for new life in the withered, petrified wood
...the matrix repeats; the fractals of creation and pattern still exists, and though it
appears to be a different lifeform, the moss that begins to grow on that wood heralds
an invitation to lush foliage about to join the circle of new Creation...
And so the sun sets, the moon rises, the new is born into the new day and the old
fades, never gone~~only transforming, transcending its old form into new vistas.
Keeping this in mind, I choose carefully what I will make of my day, my space, my
life~~seeing the value in all things, choosing the most pure potential of it whenever
my Consciousness is awake enough.
~Sunset at the end of each day~
~Sunrise in the offing~
~and so, no situation closes without the possibility of renewal and regeneration.
EVERY SITUATION CONTAINS THE POSSIBILITY OF
RENEWAL AND REGENERATION.
Every day is a Portal to my Evolution.
And then there is the beautiful and amazing matter of persistence to find
and share beauty; the willingness to wait for a Miracle. This man did that
and we get to share in his gentle triumph:
"Black bears typically have two cubs; rarely, one or three. In 2007, in northern New Hampshire, a black bear Sow gave birth to five healthy young. There were two or three reports of sows with as many as four cubs, but five was, and is, extraordinary. I learned of them shortly after they emerged from their den and set myself a goal of photographing all five cubs with their mom - no matter how much time and effort was involved. I knew the trail they followed on a fairly regular basis, usually shortly before dark. After spending nearly four hours a day, seven days a week, for six weeks, I had that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and photographed them. I used the equivalent of a very fast film speed on my digital camera. The print is properly focused and well exposed, with all six bears posing as if they were in a studio for a family portrait."
"I stayed in touch with other people who saw the bears during the summer and into the fall hunting season. All six bears continued to thrive. As time for hibernation approached, I found still more folks who had seen them, and everything remained OK. I stayed away from the bears as I was concerned that they might become habituated to me, or to people in general, as approachable friends. This could be dangerous for both man and animal.
After Halloween I received no further reports and could only hope the bears survived until they hibernated.
This spring, before the snow disappeared, all six bears came out of their den and wandered the same familiar territory they trekked in the spring of 2007.
I saw them before mid-April and dreamed nightly of taking another family portrait, an improbable second once-in-a-lifetime photograph
On April 25, 2008 I achieved my dream."
"When something as magical as this happens between man and animal, Native Americans say, 'We have walked together in the shadow of a rainbow.'
And so it is with humility and great pleasure that I share these photos with you." ~~Tom Sears
