“Chop Suey” is a catch-all, means a little of everything. today was a chop suey day. I started this post with a couple of videos that had me watching them with great attention, although I can’t even tell you why. They appeared on my screen and, hey… I watched. since I never follow a recipe, I’m not sure, why I was so mesmerized.. however, you gotta know..I’ll be eating shrimp in the near future.
Wow a tree with branches. this was another of my “oh ” moments… the clear sky through the branches had me aiming up into the sky, there was a bird singing, and I was captivated by the song. You will note there is no bird in the tree.
Here is another of my “OH” moments, I saw the shadows and had to capture them, I parked and walked towards them, like I was being called by a voice I couldn’t ignore. They really caught my attention, the sun was over head in such a way, that the shadows reached out towards me.
So absorbed was I, that I had no idea that I had my friends waiting for me in the church wondering where I had gone, and what was I doing. So much so, that sweet Yumi (new to Canada from Japan, by way of Argentina) had come out in what had to be COLD for her, in only a sweater thrown over her shoulders. Her main language being Japanese, she smiled politely when I explained that I was enthralled by the shadows. she is so precious, I just love her. In a short time, she and her family have become such dear friends. Temperature was just around freezing today.
What is it that captivates, and captures our thoughts and imaginations, why is it that what is ordinary to some is so magical to someone else. Today I was for sure, in a zone … tha was mine alone. Yes I interacted and enjoyed conversations with friends and acquaintances I met along the way. But part of me was wanting to gather tools for my visual expressions. At the second to last place I stopped at, before heading for the grocery store and the supper ingredients, I walked around a corner and came to face with this picture.
Oyyyy hello…. I didn’t want to bring it home, but I did want to include it in my day. This one was unframed, Next to it, in a beautiful hardwood frame with a gallery light on it, was this picture, side by side they were. Perfect.
So different, yet part of the one. I had a good day, it was what I call a chop suey day. How was yours? I hope you had a productive and happy day. I am off to stir fry some shrimps… =^_^= did you guess already…
Namaste – Oyashikiri
I will stir fry them in garlic and black bean sauce..
shell them and eat them like popcorn at my leisure.
