Completion…A Strange Taste?

a sense of completeness

Well, today was a day for closing a chapter–in some ways literally.

It felt very uncomfortable to do that.

It should have been an opportunity for feeling good, and sensing accomplishment. Instead, it was kind of like this…

an unfinished job

Now, no one can know for certain who had been gnawing on that pear (you might have ideas, but who can have any surety about it?).  Evidently the job was not quite finished for some reason.  It looks as though a little helper has come by to assist in some way.  Look real close.

So, where do we go from here?

This may have been what was going on today…

…but it felt more like a half-gnawed pear left in the middle of the alley.

The purpose of a fishtrap is to catch fish, and when the fish are caught, the trap is forgotten.

The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits. When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten.

The purpose of words is to convey ideas. When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.

Where can I find a man who has forgotten words? He is the one I would like to talk to.

    The first image is lovely Strange Bird! I like the black background.
    Did you try with it completely black, without the leaves or the stem showing at all?

    The frustrating thing is that all of life is a process–some of it comfortable, some not. In our humanness we long for closure, but sometimes the hope of that will be in the end.
