“We are all connected to the great circle of life”-Mufasa-Lion King


circle of life
‘The sky is a perfect empty canvas,
offers clouds nonetheless,
They shift and drift and beg interpretation…
such is the nature of art’ Jeb Dickerson

My interpretation is that the clouds above are forming a circle.
A recollection about circle of life…….( Lion King Movie )
Mufasa: Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.
Simba: But, Dad, don’t we eat the antelope?
Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.

“NATURE IS PAINTING FOR US,DAY AFTER DAY,PICTURES OF INFINITE BEAUTY” John Ruskin

untitled (1 of 1)-63

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say: “Hey look.That one is shaped like an idiot”

Mother Nature is always wonderful to watch…….if only one has time,inclination and patience to watch.

Seriously talking, how many of us look up to watch the sky and the way clouds are formed at that particular moment ? Some even may say ….so what is so great ??

In the above photo,you would have noticed the clouds. See how they are arranged,with the lovely blue color background as if the Nature has used the brush strokes on the canvas.

Look up to the sky,watch the cloud formation or disintegration and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature .Remember it is the greatest free show by Mother Nature !!

By cloud watching one can avoid boredom,since clouds are never exactly the same.

What are your thoughts ?

What is that caught your eyes in this photograph ?

Blue sky,white clouds,green leaves,ripened mangoes

I am sure other than the  beautiful  blue sky ,nothing you would have made out.

Now have a close look.

Blue sky,White Clouds,Green leaves,Ripened Mangoes,few parakeets…

Now read this quote and tell me what all you could admire because of your eyes.

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin

air a miracle.

But I think the real miracle is not to

walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on

earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which

we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds,

green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our

own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

Thich Nhat Hanh quotes (Vietnamese Monk, Activist and Writer. b.1926)

Pareidolia

Any Idea what Pareidolia means ?

I did not know till I googled and found out the meaning ,when I started searching for how and why the Human beings are capable of weird imaginations of things that we see and ….I stumbled upon this terminology.

According to rationalwiki

Pareidolia is the phenomenon of recognizing patterns, shapes, and familiar objects in a vague and sometimes random stimulus.

It’s the result of your brain trying to “make sense” of input that really has no sense to find in it.

This is seen often in inkblot tests, where random splatters of ink suggest different images to different people (look, it’s a conspiracy: they’re all deliberately made to look like vaginas!) but also in cases of people seeing visions, ghosts, and other likenesses in what are actually just random patterns that happen to look like those things.

It’s part of the recurring discussion of representation in art ( The Treachery of Images) and is a fundamental component to understanding the philosophy behind modern art
It’s a psychological phenomenon that causes some people to see or hear a vague or random image or sound.

Seeing animals in clouds,or a face or rabbit in the moon are examples of Pareidolia.

Here I am posting 5 photos of clouds and let me know Which

animal/creature/soul you are imagining in this cloud formation.You

may differ the way I imagined.Feel free to tell what you imagined.

I am giving names based on my imagination.
Example 1.

Can I say Bear & its Cub ?

What do you imagine in this ?

Example 5.
