According to Buddha

The eye is burning, visible forms are burning, eye-consciousness is burning, eye-contact is burning; also whatever is felt as pleasant or painful or neither-painful-nor-pleasant that arises with eye-contact as its condition, that too is burning. Burning with what? Burning with the fire of greed, with the fire of hate, with the fire of delusion, with birth, aging, and death, with sorrow, with lamentation, with pain, grief, and despair it is burning.

if it be your will
if there is a choice
let the rivers fill
let the hills rejoice
let your mercy spill
on all these burning hearts in hell
if it be your will
to make us well

Legislature Library, Legislative Assembly of Alberta, Edmonton ~ October 2018

  1. I believe this is a Buddhist variation on Wittgenstein’s “Warüber man nicht reden kann, darüber muss man schweigen”.

    • ahhhh yes Urban…to not talk about it is to talk about it…silence is also a response…

      have a peaceful and productive writing day ~ smiles hedy ☺️💫✌️

  2. A wonderful play of light and shadow, Hedy. Have a great week. Cheers!

    • thanks kindly Chris…I am going to see my little grandson that is always magical ☺️💫 have a happy teaching week too ~ smiles hedy 😊

      • How old is your little grandson? 🙂 I may have asked already…
        We had ours here for two days, with his mother in Virginia for a Congress and his father at a conference…
        Smiles.

        • 2.5 and he’s so fun! we get him for 1 week in January…that will be delightful…it will be his first time away from his parents 👵🏻😳 enjoy yours…how old is yours? smiles hedy 😃

          • How lovely. They seem to be almost the same age. Ours is from May. 🙂 They are at an age when everything is geared at “reconstructing” the world… (As Arendt said). January will be a treat for you. 🙂

  3. Beautiful, and eerie, series.

  4. There is a book in this style of work. Keep going.

    • I will…it’s all practice and it was wonderful to create…had fun in the sun…both at the library and in the room editing a wee bit…

      can I ask which book Ray?

      smiles ☺️🤓💫

      • Your book. It’s my way of saying you are reaching into something that is very artistic and should be pursued much further.

        OTH, it can’t all be practice. At some point. whatever you produce must turn into something meaningful. Like your book.

        • ahhhh yes I’ve got my graphic novel simmering…got some new paper from my mother who was an artist…but it’s a different sort of imagining 🤓 and yes I agree I will compose something…just not sure about the ‘whiteness’ yet…it’s also percolating…now another coffee…have a snappy day Ray ~ smiles hedy ☺️

          • No. Not that. I’m talking about a real photography book, something about 60 pp, at about 16×16 that goes in galleries, bookstores and the like, One that is printed on a big, commercial offset press. Like that.

  5. Just some wonderful captures of everyday items shows in such a magnificent way.

  6. sweetly expressed
    exultation, hedy 🙂

  7. i really like the second photo
    a nice collection for b/w

  8. The beauty and the beast – your beautiful photos and those responsible for Khoshoggi’s death. A beautiful honoring Hedy.
    Alison

    • it’s scary…it’s a world I don’t know…and after I read this article by Hatice Cengiz

      can’t imagine and what all his loved ones must be feeling…then seeing the globe and mail in the library in the light…☺️

      I imagine a kinder gentler world…you know…💫✌️

      enjoying the outdoor Alison…and the full moon so beautiful ❤️

  9. i love the ‘globe and mail’

    brilliant.

    • yes…it was fitting to me…it’s haunting what humans will do to each other…

      sending you peace and all good things for s snappy day Gavin ☺️💫✌️❣️

  10. Not always easy being in the physical and energy world, have an enlightful day Hedy 😊 🙏 🌟

  11. Well done commentary, Hedy, very well done. Such insanity….

  12. Will mercy quench the fire?
    And a special mention for Jamal Kashoggi.
    Who went into a consulate to get a certificate to be married…
    The fire of madness will burn the Earth…
    😦

  13. Wow Hedy … what an eye you have! Wonderful lighting and composition 👏

  14. Really nice collection, Hedy. Beautiful play of light and shadow; great tones. But even in this quiet place, reminders of the cruelty outside…

    I hope all is well with you…

    • yes…it was just there…even in the stillness…it is a beautiful library…yes I’m well…been doing some family stuff in Calgary…so life has been extra full ☺️💫
