Tonight...I stopped traffic-

For this ONE photo~ Cropped~


- Contrast
Glow



- Solarized...

And I often feel I am not alone~

Someone is watching over me...




But I didn't see it until I looked at the photo in a new way.

Is it Grandpa, Aunt Martha, Uncle Jack, dear Mr. Saunders, Baron...

or Him?

Or all of them?

Whatever the case, I know I am in the good company of people who love me.

And so are you-

I am with /t an eye opening in the sky and looking down at me would make me mighty uncomfortable.

It's so WEIRD that you posted this photo TODAY! I had a strange very realistic dream that I was back at home in Texas...back with all the old family, new, and just a part of home. I found myself a bit teary as I readied for work. Being conscious of the date, I remembered that it was my Papa Bill's birthday today.

He was the Father that adopted me along with Mama Ann. Although I know my biological parents, these were the people that raised me on that cotton farm in Texas.

Papa Bill was an amazing man! He gave me the principles and loves of all that makes me good. However, he was born in 1898. Today, he would have been a mere 109! Why today, I wondered...did his birthday make me teary and so reminiscent?

Then, I saw your photo many hours after I was "over it", and realized, in many, many ways...it's a small world. Folks from all over and very far away touch each other in tiny ways.

After seeing this photo, I even laughed and thought of the photo magnet you sent us all that are "blog buddies" that are all so varied and spread apart.

Maybe Papa Bill was just saying hi to all of us from heaven, just to let us all know that as crazy as life can be some days...we are all living in the same universe.

Hope this comment didn't creep you out, I LOVED your photo. Just sharing my random crazy thoughts :)

Susan- you are dear to my heart...
I don't think anyone in the world understands this (the photo) better than you do~ and you are nice! :)

/t- lol...if you are a friend of mine...they are a friend to you.
You know that---right?

SJ- same goes for you- but I will tell you, I was a quite surprised when I "solarized" that photo and saw the eye. I definitely did not notice that quality when I took the picture and was waving the cars around me!

Malinda- thank you for everything you said here! No...you did not creep me out! LOL :) I've lost some very special people this year-4 of them passed in Feb and March!
So, I guess I'm thinking more and more about those I've lost...and yet, feeling pretty sure they are close by at times. It's a gift really. Often I'll feel a sense of peace, sometimes the tears flow, and other times I simply feel a presence.
I was awestruck by the sunset last night...and I was so glad I had my camera with me- and I'm glad it meant so much to you :)
Hope you have a fabulous day! :)

Leelee- thank you, so much:)
Hugs back! :)

Greg- :) It's a sweet thought- "them watching us"...
I miss my Grandfather~
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
:)

Thanks so much for sharing that photo. I needed to be reminded that they are still there.

Baron has been on my mind so much the past few days I wrote a small poem in my other blog.

Hugs to you, and thanks for sharing that beautiful photo.

Could it be the mystic third eye of arcane legend?

I'm not one to scoff at such signs, actually, for they more often than not represent something fundamentally important going on within the unconscious mind. Since it is my belief that much of the spiritual realm takes place in th unconscious mind, who's to say?

foam said...

did it blink back at you?
i love looking at the sky and finding all kinds of visual imagery.

Anonymous Boxer said...

Delurking - must say what an incredible photograph that this!

Scary Monster said...

Both the watcher and the watched both reside within us.
That you noticed something spiritual in the heavens only proves that you are able to see that which has been hiding within you long before you ever took that picture.

SpongyBones said...

Wow! That's amazing. I so dig the way that it looks like a eye. Not spying, just making sure we are okay. Awesome!

Jo said...

I'm Spongy and Barons sister. Spongy told me about this post. I cannot tell you how comforting this is to see him this way. Thank you for your friendship to him.
