I learned a new word/concept today from Robert Genn" at The Painters Keys newsletter. Miksang The art of contemplative photography the Tibetan word miksang translates to mean "good eye." Fascinating isn't it? At photography I am a dilettante. My camera is an Olympus with 7.1 megapixles, 10 X zoom, it has a macro lens, and I can make 45 second movies. It's a neat camera. Just take out your digital camera and walk around your around the yard and take photos using the macro. Afterwards have a slide show you will be taken away, Zen-like, to a world of amazing detail, colour and design.
This is what I saw the beautiful iridescent green colors of their bodies shining in the sun. Not a nasty dead mouse with no head and some filthy flies laying their icky maggot eggs.
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour." (William Blake)
