According to Buddha

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body.

if i am alive this time next year
will i have arrived in time to share?
and mine is about as good this far
and i’m still applied to what you are
and i am joining all my thoughts to you

a day ago ~ trees + present self study #2 ~ Etown – Amiskwaciwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ ~ January 2021

  1. Beautiful. 😘🖤

  2. The paths of life… Absolutely beautiful, Hedy! xoxoxoxo

  3. “All of them are alive in this moment” – I like that. It’s comforting. My immediate family are all gone, but all of them are alive in me. There’s an inherent sense of duty there when I think about it, that I need to honor their legacy.

    • yes Kim…for me rituals and re/remembering with gratitude…today I’m remembering dinner table talks with a grin/smile…I can see/feel them in my bones🤓🙂…have a productive day sending you joy hedy 💫

  4. Wonderfully touching and thought-provoking with a wonderful collection of images that are perfect.

  5. The family surrounds us, maybe more than we know. We may even see
    them in the hand or ‘feel’ them in our bones. Trees do tell us plenty.
    Great post Hedy, what a lovely day for a picnic.

  6. Excellent, Hedy.

  7. Our connections are always with us like your words and pictures so well captured.
    Lovely Hedy! ❤️

  8. I was just reading a book by Anam Thubten and saw this line: Enlightenment is simply seeing the truth without the mind’s distortion, clear like the palm of your hand. Namaste! 🙏

    • Anam Thubte haven’t read him yet 🤓🙏…the palm of your hand…also reminded me of doing a yoga Nidra…Namaste Mike sending you joy ☺️💫

  9. I love this series, Hedy, especially the third and fourth together – that weeping birch and the hand – just perfect.

    • all the thin lines and yes that is a lovely weeping birch…not so many of them here so it’s a special tree…thanks kindly for saying…hoping you had the best sleep and it’s a new day…sending strength and all good things…yesterday was good for our souls ☺️❣️

  10. My first thought was that these naked winter trees are revealing the fingerprints of the sky. 🙂 It’s the juxtaposition of these beautiful images and how they share this page together that leads to these beautiful discoveries. Thank you, Hedy, for inspiring that word-image with these lovely frames!

    • Humble thank you Michael I appreciate your thoughtfulness and comments…seems best to look up rather than left or right these days…we’ve had some delicious sunshine…but the winter freeze is coming 🥶 glad to have electricity and warmth 🤓 stay cozy smiles hedy ☺️

  11. Great post. ‘All of them are alive in this moment’ I like the tree-hand connection, with the Sufjan song. And finally: I love the 3rd shot. Thanks and have fun! 🙂

    • well I did think of heart but wasn’t sure to how to photograph that 😂 I’m trying my best Harrie stay strong and also have fun. ☺️💫

  12. Love these photos, and it is an interesting thought.

  13. Oh Miss Hedy … such a moving post my friend ❤️

  14. Our hands are the upside down roots of our tree?
    (Begun your book. Very interesting)
    Tot ziens Hedy

    • yes that makes sense Brian 🤓🙌 🌲…it’s my doctoral thesis…so long ago now…
      dank je 🙏 I still connect with 3 of the women to this day…that’s most special for me 🤓

      • It’s a good work. I liked the idea of the disposable cameras. As I read it (and hear the way you still write) I wonder what you would change to the methodology, if anything at all. The capacity for images has so exploded.
        So nice to have kept in touch with 3. They must be pushing 40, almost, by now. families of their own. You could almost write a follow-up.
        Tot ziens Hedy.

        • yes others have suggested that as well…they are all accomplished humans with layers of stories and adventures of their own…I was fortunate to have met them…the stories of photography back then was so layered and exhausting…but I loved it…mostly. 🤓☺️

          • Accomplished humans is a thing to be(come). 👏🏻

          • always in a state of be coming, right 🤓💫

          • True. But again you have a particularly high level of consciousness. A level many people never achieve. But it’s all right. To each his/her own. 🙏🏻💕🌹

          • yes every ‘body’ ought to work on self first ☺️🤓 everyone is where they are suppose to be…someone told me that once…but I don’t know…🤪

          • There is a lot of interest in your book about ‘body’. Which i find challenging. A different perspective.
            I just wondered why other ‘bodies’ don’t work so much on self? Hmmm. Could it be education? Or some forms of it? I was home schooled. So I had to find most of the answers by myself. While in many a classroom, one is taught to look at the teacher for guidance… With exceptions of course. One of my best teachers in Grad school did not “give class”. His was a seminar. Grad students taught the class. One at at a time. He put us where we were supposed to be? 😉

          • Politics of the body is a long narrative thread in my life Brian 🤓🙂I just did a body politic PechaKucha presentation🤓I’m always trying to do more of that sort of work. I had a great graduate experience…I loved it!
