Visual Aides: Near and Far
Bluebells Not Ringing Yet
We’ve looked, but there is no sign yet of the Virginia Bluebells we transplanted 15 years ago. They remind us of Walnut Knob where we dug them up–my first Floyd County home out on the Parkway in 1997. And they are a symbol of spring. We have not arrived, so this image will have to suffice. Mouse-over the thumbnail for enlarged view. [su_custom_gallery source=”media: 11025″]
A Matter of Perspective
I highly recommend this new look at Life, The Universe and Everything–at least to the extent that we have been able to extend our vision via the Hubble Space Telescope. This piece I come back to at low points, as a frame of reference. Funny, first time I mistyped frame of “reverence.” [Don’t even think about watching this without audio on or at less than full screen.]
And Closer to Earth…
And definitely worth a look for those who love, live in or long for views of Floyd County, Virginia–this new promotional video that offers a glimpse of who and where we are. The what and why are harder to portray in nine minutes.
We live in an amazing place in time and space, and walk around like numb, ungrateful zombies most of our waking ours. If we comprehended it all, our heads would explode. Reverence. Humility. Gratitude. And awe. Open those filters all the way and take another look.
