According to Buddha

Remain soft-spoken and forgiving, even when reason is on your side.

  4. Wow. Gorgeous, Hedy!

    • thank you kindly Lemony humbled as I follow the beautiful work your create in close ups…have a creative and snappy day ☺️💫❤️

  5. When you find feathers upon your path it could be taken to mean that you are on a higher spiritual path (whether you accept it or not), and it may be a sign of encouragement as you philosophically travel on this path.

    • Thank you kindly Urban…feathers have always been fascinating to me…on whatever path I’m on…I collected them when I was a girl…and I’ve often dreamt I can fly…they are magic to me…and soft…and I work at staying soft and open hearted 🤓☺️ I appreciate the connections you share with me Urban ~ sending you all good things for a joyful day ☺️🤓 hedy ✌️

  6. Lovely textures and repetitions. Thanks Hedy 💛

  7. great quote.

    when i find a feather on the ground, i feel it is a gift the bird left for me.

    • yes I’ve enjoyed the work of Master Cheng Yen…her words resonate for me…and I agree and gift of pointing me in the right direction 🤓💫✌️ compose a joyful day Buddy ~ many smiles hedy ☺️

    • Thank you kindly Eddie…in my hedy head I do connect the happenings in the world to my sense making…you know…and the feathers worked for me…we can do better 🤓✌️ have a heart warming day 😊 coming over to fill my soul once I’m done responding as I’ve been so slow this week…all in good way ~ hugs and smiles to you Eddie ✌️❤️

  11. Just found your site. You’ve been around for while…2011.

    Marvelous blog. Wish I had seen it sooner. I don’t ‘practice’ Buddhism but, I have been a fan of Alan Watts for years.

    Beautiful photography! ❤

    • Thank you kindly for your comments ☺️ appreciated yes I began photographing with intention when I started sloppy 🤓 I love my little black box and I never expected people to follow when I began so I’ve thoroughly enjoyed composing my posts 2X a week….it’s good for me. I will check your work out as we’ll compose a beautiful day ~ smiles Hedy 😀💫

  12. The feather studies are full of tenderness, Hedy. It appears that you were immersed in it all! How fitting the “quote” is, too.

    • well thank you…yes they are soft…and yes it’s been inside time with these brutal cold temperatures…-30 to -35 isn’t cutting it for being outside but soon it will be spring…and now all those nasty beetles are dead so our trees will be happy ☺️🤓✌️ I’ll write you yet Lynn…being a 👵🏻 is a full time job 😂 😊

      • No problem! Plans are being made, a few days are filling up but we have some flexibility in each place. So many choices, it’s insane. If talking is better, email me your info and I’ll call. Stay warm!

        • Okay Lynn just off to Canada Games opening I’m around Sunday and Monday so we could chat if that works…I’ll email you my number 🤓☺️👍 perfect! So fun to plan and I love those feelings of anticipation 💫

  13. Love the black and white photographs, they really bring out the pattern in the feathers!

    • humble thank you Bertie and Croc’ appreciate you saying…I agree ☺️ they are so lovely…compose a beautiful day ~ smiles hedy ☺️✌️

  14. Superb sequence Hedy. Beautiful compositions. 🙂

  15. Especially when reason is on your side. 🙂
    Great feather work.

    • humans do not reason entirely from facts…logic is always curious…and sense making can seem necessarily troubling…

      feathers are beautiful ☺️💫

      • Yes, they are. Come to think of it, such a functional “tool” made to fly in the lightest way are so delicate and beautiful. Which proves if need be, that practical can lead to Beauty. A small brick in the construction of sense?

        • 🤔🤓☺️✌️

          • Dear Sloppy readers and/or lookers ☺️💙…I am attaching a thread here from Disperser 🤓 plus I need to figure out comments being closed 🙄 thank you kindly for your teachings Disperser ☺️✌️

            The comments on the feather post were closed, so I’m commenting here . . . actually, suggesting: you should check the legality of picking up feathers you find.
            You could find yourself liable for a large fine. Do a search on picking up feathers and also the 2018 Migratory Bird Act (or treaty).

            Okely Dokely.

            If also mentioned it because -from the comments- some commenters didn’t seem to be aware of the law. If they are your friends, you might want to let them know.
