Sunday Morning

I didn’t know if there was anything like a God. I didn’t care. But it was mostly clear to me we were not just castaways in some tohubohu bearing an ensign of meaning only for those desperate enough to concoct one: I felt mostly certain more was going on than met the eye—despite not having a real clue just what that “more” might entail. My assuredness on these matters owed less to faith than it did to experience, for I’d been hearing echoes of the uncanny since early childhood.

  1. An amazing quote, David. A perfect word “more” and that that entails for each one of us.❤️

  3. I like how you have your God conversations on Sundays.

    Some photos summon back a state. This one summons the state of being half awake and half asleep, still dreaming. The clouds and water like eye lids slightly open, peeking outside.
    So beautiful!

  6. “echoes of the uncanny”

    Your photo is full of echoes. Like voices in a dark cavern calling out for light, they awaken the mystical and the uncanny as if to say, “Hello. God. Are you listening?”
    And in response, the light breaks through the darkness.

    There is always ‘SOURCE’ … “But it was mostly clear to me we were not just castaways in some tohubohu bearing an ensign of meaning only for those desperate enough to concoct one: I felt mostly certain more was going on than met the eye—despite not having a real clue just what that “more” might entail. ”

  10. That’s a great photo, DK. Very nice. It doesn’t always have to be sunshine to be a good photo, does it!?

  11. I, too, am drawn to the clouds. You have captured the penumbra…seemingly a gateway between the fading night and approaching day…so beautifully pal, and have illustrated that elusive sense of ‘more’ exquisitely. Moved….
