‘Highlander’ – Day 177/365

‘Highlander’ – Day 177/365

Guess where my brain went as I was painting these mountains in Scotland captured in all their stoic glory by the epic @deniscebulec?⁠
Duncan. Duncan Mcleod. ⁠
.⁠
And herewith my favourite quote from the series:⁠
.⁠
Connor MacLeod:⁠
I’ve been alive for four and a half centuries, and I cannot die.⁠
Brenda:⁠
Well, everyone has got their problems.⁠

😂⁠
But it got me thinking.. What would I do if I was immortal..?⁠

I think I’d just start walking…cover the whole Earth in my footprints. What would you do?⁠

‘Unfathomable’ – Day 176/365

‘Unfathomable’ – Day 176/365

Some folk think God or a higher power is unfathomable – for their own reasons, they just can’t wrap their minds around it.
.
To me, the very existence of totally outrageous nature events that feel unfathomable are proof for something greater, more awesome and phenomenally fathomable.
.
It came to my attention last night, minutes before drifting off to sleep, via gentle whispers in my ear, that the next two weeks may present some breathtaking skies during the taurid meteor swarm. While some of the pebbles cause blazing streaks across the sky, this same swarm brings with it large rocks, that, according to Severe Weather Europe, have their highest likelihood of impact in late June.

.
As I drifted off to sleep, I thought to myself how unfathomable it is, that we get to be these tiny specs drifting on an orbiting rock amid many unpredictable celestial bodies, for God only knows how long, on this astoundingly beautiful planet with more to see, learn, discover and experience that many many lifetimes wouldn’t be enough for.
.
There really is no time to waste when it comes to making your living seconds every bit as great as they are in your heart.
.
Hope you see some bright lights. And don’t just wish upon a star. That star could be your end next time. Get cracking on that dream of yours.

‘Release’ – Day 175/365

‘Release’ – Day 175/365

Just this beach. Just the sound of this shore, coming in, and going out.

Just these clouds, passing on by.
.
Is letting go something you do because you can’t hold on anymore. Or is letting go something you do because you understand that the thing you were holding onto is no longer for you.

Monday thoughts..

‘Arctic’ – Day 174/365

‘Arctic’ – Day 174/365

You know how they say it’s better to experience something just once than to hear about it a thousand times.
.
The Northern Lights must be one of those things. I cannot fathom a sky this colour. And no amount of photos or paintings can make me really grasp it. But I’m certain, seeing it just once will be enough.
.
Because an arctic colour like this must surely burn itself into the deep recesses of your mind.
.
One day, when I’m old, wise and grey, after accidentally staring into the sun too long while gardening, I will no longer see spots when I close my eyes, I will see the Northern Lights all over again. I’m sure of it.

‘The Crab’ – Day 173/365

‘The Crab’ – Day 173/365

Enter the season of the Cancerian. Apparently, they are not to be underestimated, but since I know very very few personally, I can’t vouch for a damn thing. Ha! 🦀
