who is the greatest imitator?

What are your thoughts as you see the photo above?

Some embarrassing moments?

No need my friend.

Do we imitate nature or Nature imitates us?

My friend, there is no such thing called ‘Originality’ other than Mother Nature.

My guess is we are the greatest copy masters.

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”  Jim Jarmusch

The above photo is that of fruits of the Canna Patens Plant.

Each fruit can have 10 seeds, rounded in shape, black in colour and are hardened when ripe.

Canna plant flowers

“Stay wild, power child” Unknown

Canna Lily is a flowering plant.

Flowers are asymmetric and composed of 3 sepals.

Flowers can be red, orange or yellow or a combination of any of the three.

The seeds are used as beads in jewellery, rosaries and used in Kayamb, a musical instrument.

In Thailand Canna is a traditional gift on ‘father’s day

In remote corners of India Canna is used to ferment alcohol

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
