the unfucking of: thyself

After the anxiety fuck the was yesterday, today was ‘recovery’ mode. The positive is that it didn’t turn into a major panic fuck – A for awesome … but what I’ve noted today is that after one of those ‘episodes’, it feels like my immune system has taken a beating and I usually wake up with some kind of physical ailment … Today it’s a swollen, sore throat. So I’m knocking back the Vitamin C and Panadol and trying to remain ‘mindful’ arrghhh.

So I didn’t venture too far and found this little fuzz ball in the back yard.

Now I must have taken like 100 shots of this little fucker … well, ok, maybe 30 … and for the life of Me I couldn’t stop shaking therefore the macro thing-a-me wouldn’t focus and every single photo except for 2 ended up way out of focus … or so I thought.

I’ve done this before … actually I done this a shitload of times before … but today, whilst scrolling through my 30 odd photos, mumbling all kinds of fuckery because they were all ‘shit’ … I noticed that the macro had actually just focussed on something other than what I intended.

Now isn’t that the story of my fucking life too!! Argghhh …

And on closer perusal, I noticed the bud behind it … the little spikey furry thingees on the stalk of it … the grass behind it … and of course, the blurry but beautiful little fluff ball that was supposed to be my actual shot.

Todays Learns: Beauty always shows up in the strangest of places, at the strangest of times, whilst focussing on something completely different ;)

So this is the haps:

I was gazing out the kitchen window (yes, still far too peopley to be out during the day (light) …), pondering, again, on the mindfulness thingy … trying very hard to be all reflective and shit …

And I see this awesome little shrivelled up poppy, which of course is doing it’s seedy thing. Ok I said to my pontification-al self; “thats your photograph!”

So I bumbled about, get my camera and go to take an ‘epic’ photograph … ‘cos thats what we’re trying to master … mindful epic-ness – Yah ;)

So I focus my trusty little Canon Power Shot SX120 IS, and the macro is freaking out ‘cos the winds blowing like an uncooperative bitch and the shrivelled up poppy is waving about like … ‘come on epic one, try take a decent shot … hahaha’ …  but I don’t give up … it’s one of my super powers!

20 odd clicks later and I figure I must have a decent shot in there … fuck mindfulness … I need the shot!

I shove the SD card into my Mac and they all pop up … and here’s what occurs to Me:

Whilst we’re busy trying focus on the one thing, we miss out on whats going on in the peripheral. 

They’re both beautiful in their own ways …

Here’s to appreciating all views and all things from different perspectives ;)

Still far too peopley out there for Me, but whilst having a smoke this morning, and actively ‘looking’ for shizz (funny how that happens), but being ever so mindful in the process … I spotted this.

Backstory: I repurposed an old washing machine into the base of a BBQ. All around said washing machine slash BBQ base there are the original bolt holes. Our ‘BBQ’ is situated right on the edge of our very wild ‘flower garden’, which is in the process of dying off, seeding … whatever it is that you call it. But that little pink mass, is a bougainvillea leaf, which has blown round from the plant at the front of our house.

And here it is: in all it’s little dried up glory, still looking quite pink and beautiful – through the bolt hole of an re-purposed washing machine.

Thats my beauty find for the day <3
