According to Buddha

To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.

and instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
you realize that life goes fast
it’s hard to make the good things last
you realize the sun doesn’t go down
it’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

broken wasp nest – walk in the woods ~ September 2020

  1. Sees the sun going down, and the eyes in his head, see the world spinning ’round… 🐞

    • Such a great song…thanks Mike ☺️🙏💫
      Well on the way
      Head in a cloud
      The man of a thousand voices
      Talking perfectly loud…

      Imagine 🤔 have a joyful day ~ smiles and hugs hedy 💫🤗

  2. Wow, Hedy… these shots!!!! 👌
    Have a lovely day, my friend! xoxo

  3. great shots and truth in your words Hedy!!! I so appreciated trapping out bees from our wall in a box and it was so exciting.. unfortunately, a critter got them all.. sad. Have a good day ❤️🤗

    • So fascinating to see their homes…the papery feeling and so perfectly made…wasps or bees in homes is different than the woods for sure Cindy…always an adventure…sending you joy and all good things ~ hugs hedy ☺️🤗❣️

      • Yes, totally different Hedy. I see many in the trees when I hike. Enjoy your shots this week and I’ll look forward to seeing them. Sending you love and joy as well! ❤️🤗 Cindy

  4. To live is to die over and over again.
    Masterful photography Hedy
    Smiling is worth more than gold

  5. And back to the earth they go….

  6. So true. The sun doesn’t actually set. It’s funny how our language perpetuates the illusion. Every day really is a new birth. Beautifully written! The photos are excellent too! How can you tell the nest is broken? Not afraid of wasps?

    • Thanks kindly ‘sweetspontaneous’ I make the photos and lift the words of others in my sloppy posts…as part of one of my intentions…these are some words from Ram Dass and the music is the flaming lips 🤓 it’s broken onto pieces … and the wasps are all gone… I’m not fond of wasps but curious to see their home ☺️🤓 compose a joyful day ~ smiles hedy

  7. BTW, there is a repost option on WordPress. I would reblog this fantastic post if you’re so interested in sharing it on my site…. Let me know! 🙂

  8. Unique and beautiful subject to photo, Hedy ~ and perfectly matches the wise words about being fully alive “…to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land” Wish you a great weekend ahead.

    • Yup Randall it’s true to me 🤓 it’s not the world I imagine 🤔 but it’s exciting indeed 😀 getting some grandson cuddles and giggles so good. Hoping you’re doing well Randall ~ sending joy 🙋‍♀️💫

  9. Amazing photos. I would never dare to go that close to a beehive.

    • These were wasps…none left I even took part of it home to study more closely simply amazing…thinking we could learn from wasps…not my favourite insect…their stings hurt. 🤓☺️ have a joyful day Rabirius ~ smiles hedy 😀

  10. They suit monochrome very well.

  11. Hey Miss Hedy … ah a paper wasp nest! I never realised how wonderful they could look.

    • hi Julie yes you are right…they are amazing…beautiful nature…but as I said not my favourite insect 🐞 ☺️🤓 sending you joy smiles hedy ☺️💫

  12. A good representation of social structure. Or of a cell phone network. 😉
