awakening

Prospect Ponds Natural Area…awakening

 

…the very essence of all alchemical work was a spiritual transformation, liberation of God from the darkness of matter. …alchemical symbolism describes pictorially the process of change from psychic sleep to awakening, and the stages along that journey. Jung found in this symbolism an illustration…he called the process of individuation: one’s gradual unfoldment from an unconscious to a conscious state, and the healing process underlying it.*

a secret place

“It is such a secret place, the land of tears. …One runs the risk of weeping a little, if one lets himself be tamed. …And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me.”

Antoine de Saint-Exuprey, The Little Prince

thursday’s special: pick a word

Together with my Roget’s International Thesaurus, I selected these following images for September’s “pick a word” challenge…

can a journal be populated with words?  can words inhabit a journal?

nature, by her very nature is time sensitive

words and letters are often very companionable

Hopefully I will be forgiven for only including one color image for this Lost in Translation’s photo challenge.
