Foxglove Moments

 

 

This photo was a mistake (I love it when that happens.)

Standing in the bright sunlight, focusing on the rhododendron, I didn't notice the Buddha back in the shadows‐‐the shadows were much darker than this picture now cropped suggests.

But when I saw the photo, I was surprised--and delighted!--giving me metaphysical shivers.

The same surprise occasionally happens with my writing‐‐some plot twist I didn't see coming, or a deeper meaning to a story suddenly revealed‐‐and I think, "Wow, I would never have thought of that!"

And a voice from some deeper part of me whispers, You didn't.
