A view of Heaven from a seat in hell-Steven Callahan

I guess the purpose of these chairs put on top of each other and then kept precariously balancing on a balcony wall (2nd floor) is to make more space available inside the balcony.

Even if the chair were to fall, luckily it falls inside the balcony, not on the heads of people walking below.

The joy of sitting!!

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Lens -Artists Photo Challenge #151: From Large to Small

This post is part of Lens-Artists photo challenge by Pattimoed- From large to small

For this Challenge Pattimoed says

“This week, we’re thinking about size–from large to small. For this challenge, pick a color and select several photos that feature that color.  Start with a photo of a big subject in that color (for example, a wall) and move all the way down to a small subject in that same color (for example, an earring)”.

So we have two things to do.

Choosing a colour and showing images having that colour, from large to small.

I have chosen colour blue

“Blue colour is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight” John Ruskin

 

“Design is not just what it looks like, design is how it works” Steve Job

In the image above you can notice the tall pillar with beautifully designed, aesthetic blue coloured art and incidentally, one of the ladies’ shirt appears to have blue colour.

 

 

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Leonardo Da Vinci

In the above photograph, you can notice that chair with the blue coloured cushion. And the gentleman on the left is wearing blue coloured hand gloves.

 

 

There are five known gyres spinning around in our world’s oceans. A gyre is a slowly moving spiral of currents created by a high pressure system of air currents. A spinning soup, so to speak, is made of what exists in the water. And in this case, the gyres are spinning with millions of tons of our discarded and forgotten about plastic waste!   Brandon Boyd (trvst,world)

In the above image, a blue coloured plastic mug is seen hung to the iron grill. 

And plastic material seen everywhere and used extensively, though people are aware of the pollution & environmental disaster it is causing.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Welcome to the missing seat!

“When we look at an empty chair and say ‘the chair is empty’, the ’emptiness’ gets angry because the chair is actually not empty, the ’emptiness’ is sitting there!” Mehmet Murat ildan

It amazed me to see this chair

Is this a missing seat or an empty chair?

Why it’s kept?

What is the idea behind it?

Is somebody trying to make a fool of us?

Does somebody want to send us a message?

What type of message?

I am not sure.

In this type of situation, what one can do best?

“There is something much better than sitting on an empty chair and that is to watch it and to let it inspire you to think deeply!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Is emptiness important in our life?

Yes.

My friend, we require emptiness for us so that we can fill it up with what we wish to possess.

But western & eastern philosophies have opposite views

Yes, while the western world sees emptiness as negative (Depression/Nihilism) resulting in anxiety.

The eastern world thinks of it as a positive aspect of life.

According to Lao Tzu,

He gives examples of the Center hole in a Wheel, the Emptiness of a pot and the Empty space in a house.

Because there is an emptiness in these situations, things become valuable.

“We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the centre hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable.”

Thank you.

Pull up a seat

The topic reminded me of the recent ‘Sofagate’ event where the first female chief of The European commission, Ursula von der Leyen was hurt by not having a chair to sit in during a meeting.

“If my strength intimidates you, I hope you realise that’s a weakness of yours”  Unknown

Thank you.
