Rural Reflections

 Something poignant about a lone gas station out in the middle of nowhere.  

Edward Hopper caught the feeling  in a painting of a gas station surrounded by trees on  countryside road.

The reflections of the trees in the windows is a view of another world when set against the background of colorful signage, notices, and advertisements.

Windows into Worlds: Bike Culture

We recently toured Saugerties, NY and I found this interesting window full of biker paraphernalia and decided to play with the subject and the reflections of the town in the window.

Barn Window Reflections

We live in a dream world the  Hindus call “Maya”

 All is illusory–

a cosmic dream from which we will awaken

when we die.

 Just as a baby may think

it is the “end”

of  life as he knew it

when he is being shuttled through the birth canal

while being born,

so, too, we may think it is the end

when we are dying

to this world of delusion.

 But we will be born to something real,

something just beyond the veil of illusion

in which we are so enmeshed during this “life” as we know it.

 

“When we awaken in God we shall realize that mortal life is only a picture made of shadows and light, cast on a cosmic movie screen” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
