Treasures of Nature onthe Eve of Earth Day


Treasures of Nature on the Eve of Earth Day
We had spent a good part of the day at one of a kind Arts and Crafts show at the Energy Centre in Exhibition Grounds. My soul had ample nourishment with all manners creative delectable, whether it is in the form of rich textiles, metal sculptures, paintings, photos, pottery, jewelry and attires by the numerous, very talented exhibiters.  When our feet refused to carry us any longer, we sought a respite with a hot gourmet coffee; then mindful of the impending bad weather we reluctantly headed home. The weather being so chaotic lately, on the chance that the cherry trees would be in bloom, we abandoned the direct route and detoured through High Park. 
My disappointment at not seeing any blossoms was soon supplanted when I spotted a flowering patch in the distance. “Stop!” I cried, “I have to see this.”
 Moments later we precariously parked alongside the road; I jumped out of the car and made my way straight down the slope to get a better view, ignoring all the while the biting cold wind buffeting my sleeves. I had on a light jacket, for the previous week’s odd warm spell had spoiled me. In truth today was more typical of March weather.  
 I was not disappointed.  This strange occurrence, this capricious display, call it what you will, my eyes soon beheld  the wondrous rows and rows of delicate flowers, strewn on the ground with their tiny white petals, dotted with occasional blues, stoic and beautiful, bending their heads, oftentimes whipped by the sudden rising cold winds. Nature has such surprises and I felt fortunate to be there at the right time to appreciate this carpet of wonder. Feeling somewhat melancholy, my heart quaked knowing the weatherman had called for snow later on this day.
Here are some of the wonders that my eyes had beheld that fortunate, rare moment:
 Happy Earth Day!

Nature's Abstract Art-4

Nature's Abstract Art-4

“Only because nature in its myriad forms corresponds with the myriad impulses of the Creative can it make these impulses real. Nature's richness lies in its power to nourish all living things; its greatness lies in its power to give then beauty and splendor. Thus it prospers all that lives. It is the Creative that begets things, but they are brought to birth by the Receptive.” I Ching
 
“The course of the Creative alters and shapes beings until each attains its true, specific nature, then it keeps them in conformity with the Great Harmony. Thus Does it show itself to further through perseverance." I Ching.

Early Spring or Global Warming?

Early Spring or Global Warming?

The signs of global warming are everywhere, yet many insists there is no real proof. Regardless of where you live, you’ve probably been subjected to some unusual weather conditions. In Ontario this is March, yet the snow has played hide and seek most of this year. Not too long ago we would get snowstorms well up to the month of April. If you are confused, think how confused the plants and trees and the insects are.  Still people, being the most adaptable of creatures, are delighted with this early spring weather and high temperatures. It gets them outdoors in droves and joy is registered in every motion. Here are few examples:

“Joy and anger, sorrow and happiness, worries and regrets, indecision and fears, come upon us by turns, with ever-changing moods, like music from the hollows, or like mushrooms from damp. Day and night they alternate within us, but we cannot tell whence they spring. Alas! Alas! Could we for a moment lay our finger upon their very Cause?”
Chuang Tzu

Computer Art by BoSt Galleries


From prehistoric times mankind has had this insatiable need to express himself artistically.  We are richer by far benefiting from this vast array of imaginative creations. Take a stroll in any Art gallery or a museum next time as a leisure pastime to nourish your soul.  
  

Presently we live in the electronic age, where most of us are avid collectors of electronic gadgetry. Within the last decade we’ve become heavily reliant on cell-phones, i-phones, tablets, notebooks to mention just a few. Daily we utilize these constant electronic companions for news, art, entertainment, shopping, education, emergency, varied communication or plain old social interaction. Traditional ways will always be around for us to enjoy, but now we have a new age art to enrich our enjoyment further. Here are some fine examples of Computer Art by Steve from BoSt Productions:
