“Every man walks his own path,

and every path has its fair share of locked doors.

You never know who holds the key

to a door you’ll need to open one day,

so you best treat people

as if they are all key holders.”


A.J. Darkholme

“Life is a house with millions of doors.

Here is a good strategy of life:

Open the doors, open as much as you can,

open as much as possible,

open the doors!”

Be fast to enter inside!”

WPC: Rainbow Light

June 25, 2015 orbs 005~

Life is such a mystery.  There is the unknown, and there is the unknowable.

And our awareness sways back and forth between what we don’t yet know, and what we believe we can not know, throughout our lives.


June 25, 2015 orbs 006~

Life is vibrating energy. 

And most of us come to understand that energy expresses itself as light.


June 25, 2015 orbs 009~

The rainbow light of living beings was understood many thousands of years ago, and some preserve that knowledge, still.

Day to day, we may not think about it too much.

There’s coffee to brew, weeds to pull, pots to water, friends to call and meals to prepare.  The TV may hypnotize us.  We get lost in our thoughts while navigating traffic.

Yet the mystery remains, always there, like the sea.


June 25, 2015 orbs 014~

Waves of light roll across us continually; our vision often limited by our consciousness.  We may feel it, we may see it; we may not consciously recognize it at all.

But a digital camera can capture what our eye may miss.  I noticed first one orb, and then another on the screen of my little Nikon today.

My eye could not see them unaided, though I felt them gathering there.


June 25, 2015 orbs 020~

Such exquisite beauty.  Such soft and silent energy gathering, revealing themselves little by little.

These light beings gathered around our Adam’s Needle, Yucca filamentosa, as I was working around this little garden space this morning.

When I stopped to capture the beauty of the Yucca’s unfolding flowers, I saw the hint of the first at the bottom of that photo.  I took a total of 17 photos over the space of a little more than ten minutes.

From a single orb in the first photo, there are more than a dozen towards the end.

A rainbow mystery; a gathering of light.

“Faith and love are apt to be spasmodic in the best minds.

Men live the brink of mysteries and harmonies

into which they never enter,

and with their hands on the door-latch

they die outside.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
