According to Buddha

I am beyond everything finite; I now see that the Spirit, alone in a space with Its ever-new joy, has expressed Itself as the vast body of nature.
I am the stars,
I am the waves,
I am the Life of all,
I am the laughter within all hearts,
I am the smile on the faces of the flowers and in each soul.
I am the Wisdom and Power that sustain all creation.

i am a star, the tear of the sun
i am a wonder, a wonder in flower
i am the spear as it cries out for blood
the word of great power
i am the wind that breathes on the sea

who but i can cast light upon the meeting of the mountains?
who but i will cry aloud the changes in the moon?
who but i will find the place where hides away the sun?


Talus Dome + iPhone airplane clouds ~ Edmonton to Toronto ~ June 2017

  1. He is in my thoughts of happiness and in my wide smile.
    Thank you for this masterful production Hedy.
    walk a tender trail

    • walk a tender trail that’s lovely Eddie…i appreciate your wisdom…i’ll be out walking outside very soon…i love to walk and see the beauty that surrounds us…having such a lovely time now here in TO so many people everywhere…met some wonderful beings! have a smiling day 😀

    • I really agree. It was really very good.

  2. Wow. Really. The reflections in the art are…everything I want to say about Art and Life and Spirit. Wow.

  3. Amazing abstracts.

  4. It looked like a pile of ball bearings. I’d never heard of the talus dome. Thanks for posting a link, Hedy Have a great week. Cheers

  5. The text at the top reminded me of the lyrics to this Anuna track:

    • dear Gregory the song you sent me here is so beautiful…i love Anuna’s lyrics…i think i ought to change my connection from the Imagine Dragons – Believer…yes i’m going to do that now…the sounds/lyrics feel better to me too as well…i appreciate your suggestion! thank you so much ~ many smiles hedy 😀 😀 😀

      • The song is an old pagan Irish bit of lyric, if I’m not mistaken. Anna is the national choir of Ireland – again, if I’m not mistaken – do it’s no surprise they chose that. I believe the speaker is supposed to be Lugh.

  6. I’ll bet you had a hard time finding an angle in which you didn’t show up in the balls.

    • yes i did but somehow the light seemed to work for me…i’ve tired before to shoot these…i went closer to them…low down…i really like this piece of public art…thanks again Gregory…i changed the song too…really appreciate your suggestion…thank you kindly compose a beautiful day ~ hedy

  14. ​Caleb  waited by the door as  he watched cherry  his girlfriend, kept going in and out of the boutique. I tried to fake a smile, because she’d see me give her the ” hurry up ”  look, and she said ” look if u’re tired of waiting, then we can leave.”

    Caleb knew that it mean’t break up. He couldn’t afford that to happen. Cherry had made him famous in school, connected him to her uncle who was a senator in Nigeria, who took personal interest in Caleb, and promised to take him to England for his masters. Her uncle paid in 30,000 Naira into his account on monthly basis. Caleb’s father always teased Caleb because of this, but often said ” it is not right that a lady be providing for a man, rather it should be the other way around. I don’t blame you though. But make sure you work hard. Don’t depend on her uncle’s wealth, make yours, because if u become a liability to him,  her family members willlay you off, as no person will want his daughter to marry a liability. Even if she protest, it will not work. She might disagree for sometime, but soon, she’ll loathe you also” Caleb wanted to agrue, but for the first time, Caleb agreed with his dad.

    Caleb watched as cherry  talked to the seller in the boutique. Her voice was loud and clear ” This one’s too tight, I like it,and can you get those brown high over there , please??” Caleb watched her enter a door in the boutique. Watching her, he smiled. He wondered why her father or her uncle, he couldn’t tell who was paying her  fees and u- keep would waste so much money on her, she couldn’t as much as write exams by herself, neither did she do any assignment on her own, he did them for her, that’s why her uncle paid her, and even paid the lecturers so that they let him be writing assignment and exams for her. Her uncle usually say to him ,”I like smart boys.” 

    Caleb was no longer afraid as he was convinced that cherry can’t dump him. 

    “Hey, are you okay??” a voice said, and a hand tapped Caleb on the shoulder. It was cherry. Caleb knew he was in deep thought for a while, long enough for cherry to finalize everything. She called a plastic bag filled with clothes, jewellery, cool high heels, and make- up kits. She smiled as she walked. She then whispered to Caleb ” That time you’re thinking, and I tried to call your attention, I thought u ignored me on purpose, I wanted to end it.”

    Caleb wanted to say something, but he held himself. They crossed the road, and were at the pavement waiting for a drop. Cherry brought out her iPhone 7 and was chatting, chewing bubble gum. ” Hey put that phone in your bag. You’re making yourself vulnerable to arm robbers.” Cherry didn’t reply, but she put the phone in her bag.

    Later on, two buses came by. The first bus was a blue bus, the colour had worn out, the front glass had lots of scratches, the back light was broken real bad. The conductor kept shouting ” Artillery junction!! ” Many times. People didn’t enter inside it, everyone entered the second bus which was free. Caleb ran to the second bus. He had secured a seat for him and cherry, but cherry refused to enter it. Caleb had come out of the bus serval times, beckoning on her to enter the bus, but she refused saying that she’s not ready to be squeeze like sardine. Cherry kept on saying that she doesn’t like free things. Caleb had secured seats like 3 times, but those seats had been taken because cherry refused to enter. 

    Soon the conductor began shouting at him. Finally he got the front seat. He kept on pleading with cherry to enter, but she was pressing her phone. Finally Caleb called her a bitch so loudly. He thought she didn’t hear him, but she raised her eye brows at him. He looked front as the bus began moving. ” The bitch, who does she think she is?? Dummy. She  can’t do anything by herself, yet she claim tush.” Caleb said loudly.

    Caleb looked side ways, he perceived a chocking smell that made him unconscious. 

    Caleb woke up, only to find himself chained on the hand and leg. He was chained in such a way that he couldn’t move. He noticed a  thatch shrine opposite the bus. He turned his back, the bus was empty. He was the last person in the bus. He tried to free himself but he couldn’t.  He saw headless bodies, kept in a straight line. Some of the bodies, had their heads, perfectly cut off, while other bodies had large cuts on their necks. While he tried to recall what he had just seen, He heard a loud voice. ” Send in that remaining guy that is at the front seat, the priest needs his head to complete the ritual.” 

    Caleb threw his head back as he sat down, ready to think  of how wrong he was and how right cherry was. He shifted sideways, as he saw a man approaching, he knew he was next.

  16. Intriguing and beautiful. A pile of polished spherical mirrors seem like quite a sight. Like a short stack of all-seeing eyes. All for one and one for all! Then you have the Earth itself, a spherical jewel, too. Resplendent.
