During the weekend I was thinking about winter and the way it expresses itself. Based on our experiences we easily identify lots of its characteristics - frosty trees, overcast skies, low temperatures, snowfalls, etc. These are all repeating patterns that are specific to winter and that help us distinguish it from the other seasons. They are never exactly the same but similar enough for us to identify them.
Let’s think of a winter tree. As so many other things in our world it’s a working symbol, it’s a pattern that we see and apply to understand and get to know something else. Nature repeats its forms in fascinating ways but it’s the observer who makes it real. It’s our mind that creates reality and gives character and meaning to the world around us.
How do you perceive these magical shapes hidden in tangerines’ skin? Are they frosty trees? Do they grow on isles sliding on top of frozen lakes? Do they have characters?
Drop me a line. I'm eager to know :)
