Wow...that is...really BIG!The toes look like salt shakers!Perhaps it's enough that you recognize the extremes of various behaviors and know where the middle lies, even if you find the middle difficult to achieve. I think a lot of people can't even tell what's extreme!
Oooh, like these musings of yours today. Especially like the photos going from the extreme closeup to the different aspects. Actually better, I think, that you don't have the entire sculpture in one picture here.Now I'm thinking about balance . . .
Didn't realize Pod had such large feet.
wise words steve, as i'd expect from you. (*not the words about the salt shakers.....;op)Tut-tut, it was extremely photographable.silly words shelly, as i'd expect from you. ;op
I love those big toes!
I love the whole thing it's beautiful!
Very cool. Looks like 3-legged Buddha has achieved perfect balance, whereas I see-saw from one extreme to the other these days. Beautiful colors and textures in that statue! superb.
completely enjoyed this post...the yin and the yang of your musings on balance...I identified with everyone. yum marmite...I may ask if you bring me a jar in april??? will definitely see you in PA or DC... can we be loose for a bit? back to marmite, it is terribly difficult to find and I have been out for quite a while! what a wonderful outing with your dad...blake, turner and this marvelous sculpture.ah how much is too much, I do have a prob at times with that!
Hmmmm... I find the three legged Bhudda a bit disconcerting, too big, too monstrous.BTW Marmite is available in Toronto. Lots of it. Yummy.
This is SO cool! Oh Lettuce you ARE perfection in all your extremes and all the inbetweens and in all your attempts at balance. There's no such thing as too much of you!
Love it,now I can relate to you with the wine, but marmite Yuck!!!
Lovely post and beautiful pictures Letty. I too find the whole balance thing a daily struggle. Marmite on toast has to be one of my favourite meals and if I didn't have a family to cook for would probably be on the menu most nights, with slices of tomato or cucumber on though, yum ;-)
I know you only mention it briefly but I LOVE William Blake. I get lost in his art and poetry. There is another one for balance - Heaven and Hell, Innocence and Experience. Thanks for the link to the whole statue but I enjoyed the parts you photographed.
