According to Buddha

Be motivated like the falcon, hunt gloriously. Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win. Spend less time with nightingales and peacocks. One is all talk, the other only colour.

when you flew away, 
you just left one feather. 
so i keep it in my pillow, 
so i’ll dream of you at night. 
 
and your feathers were the colour, 
of the sun before it sets at night. 
and your eyes were as sharp, 
as the morning sunlight.

  9. I’d be happy to spend lots of time with THIS peacock! Fabulous, Hedy! You put your stamp on it. When you think of all the people who have photographed peacocks, your images stand out. 🙂

    • I remember them in Portugal…many of them…they are a very cool bird. I appreciate your comments Lynn…it was a joyful moment composing them ~ hoping you’re hanging in handing out ~ hugs hedy ☺️🤗❣️

      • We’re hanging in…once we get past Jan 20th I think we’ll feel better. What a zoo this country is becoming!
        There were a few peacocks at a garden next to a cathedral in New York City…there’s a wonderful old coffee shop across the street, the Hungarian Coffee Shop….full of Columbia Univ. grad students…it was nice to have coffee there, sit and read, then go across the street and wander in the garden…long ago. 🙂

        • I love NY…ahhhhh I feel like leaving so much…it’s been a year now for me…and grad school also feels long ago now too…time…it’s been a rather fascinating weird week…I hear my father’s words of cautionary tales in my hedy head 🤓🧐 sending walking and outside joy ~ hugs hedy 😄☺️🤗

          • At least you got over to Vancouver! 😉 I haven’t even gone down to Seattle since this all started. Crazy. Yes, what a week. I’ve been saying for the last month that I was nervous about the 6th, but I didn’t think people would be breaking into the capitol…and everything else…now let’s see what’s going to happen on the 20th. It would be nice if our country could take a back seat on the news for a while. 😉 Wishing you creative times by the river!

          • yes once in June and then in September…BC is still under lockdown with no visitors until Feb 5th…here in Alberta who knows…each week it changes…we are to avoid all contact…I’m going with the believing story that goodness is deeper and with the images the world has seen perhaps, we can reimagine new ways of being…it’s about democracy…leadership…being heard…and I don’t know…bizarre times 🤓🙂🙃I do miss the coast/water and family…making some summery plans…some anticipation can feel so good! the river has been great company for sure…I’ve been documenting it a lot ~ hugs 🤗 ❣️

  10. A thing that amazes me, best seen in the fourth photo, is that the colors of the peacock feather change along the length of individual strands of the feather–!!!–which means that as each of those strands grow that somehow the pigmentation and/or the physical structures that gives rise to color via various optical effects, must be varied in time as the strand grows out? And how to keep track of that for all of those individual strands so the coherent pattern of the entire feather emerges? It’s amazing!!!

    Happy New Year, Hedy!

    Peace
    Michael

    • New Year happy! and yes peacock feathers are so bright…I love the iridescent, green and blue feathers and apparently they don’t bleach in the sun or discolor over time…so cool to me ~ I appreciate your response Michael ~ sending you joy and smiles ☺️🤍🕊

  11. Such a magic structure that of feathers… Well done.
