Now showing : Metamorphosis

Let me show you what’s in my current  Nature Vistas and their Metamorphosis .

Recently I had been watching a different kind of ‘Now Showing ‘. I discovered a new kind of cinema where all you need are your open senses and to be in a state of mindfulness. There’s never a VIP  premiere since all shows are visible worldwide,accessible to anyone who are interested.The only difference is that they may vary depending on which region you are. While the rest of the world is too busy looking after the complicated version of beauty, I opt for the off beaten path.

Now showing : Nature’s artwork

There’s something about the magical beauty of spider webs during Fall. It’s one of the best natural artwork that you can see. The pattern, the intricate design, truly, a spider’s silk is amazing.Don’t miss a chance to see a cobweb in glistening dew during cold early mornings. Fall is their season, normally they are regarded as dirt, a nuisance, but during Autumn, it’s their time to shine. They are regarded as beautiful, and worthy.

I saw the one  shown in above photo last Sunday, its hanging above the railing of the suspension bridge along the Danube river. I was cycling so I need to stop for a minute to get a proper photo before its gone.Sure thing, it is worth the stop.

Now Showing : True colors

Moving in Germany have introduced me to a new attitude of awareness. I thought that my life had slowed down, downsized, & somewhat minimized, I was wrong– I was rather escalated. Wander tags have taught me a lot about simple things in life that has huge impact. I realized that I was not aware of these when I’m always in a hurry and the only colors that is ever-present in my mind is the RAL ( German Reichs-Ausschuß für Lieferbedingungen und Gütesicherung) since its part of my work. I was even good at creating different colors out of the basics. But nature has taught me something; True Colors.

Do you know that leaves has 3 (Three) pigments? It has chlorophyll (green) , carotenoid (yellow,orange,and brown), and the anthocyanin (red) . In one season, the leaves shows a grand display of all of these like a slide show.

Because the days are shorter & there’s not enough sun,the leaves can’t produce more chlorophyll ( or their food). Rather than struggle to make food through the winter, it shuts down. It stops producing chlorophyll and allows its fall leaves to die. When the tree stops producing chlorophyll, the green color leaves the foliage and you are left with the “true color” of the leaves. Does it ring a bell “You are your truest when you are alone in the dark and no one is watching “.

Now Showing : Chasing after fallen leaves

We are running on the last quarter of the year, only a few more months and the year ends. Time to chase old dreams, rekindle dimmed sights. Do you have anything worth pursuing  before this year becomes a history? I have mine and I’m still bent on chasing after it. Chasing fallen leaves doesn’t always mean gathering a mess, life-less, unworthy piles of leaves. It’s also an act of being in control and staying tuned with your desires and getting ready for the next season.

Now Showing : Not all who wanders are Lost

If I didn’t put a purpose in all my wanderings then I wouldn’t be able to write about these things. As I watched my daughter wander in the forest, I can see that she learns more about the leaves, trees, its color, and the sound of nature more than she sees in her books. She becomes aware of the sound of birds, and the colors of wild flowers. Suddenly  I love the concept of learning through play–it’s a magical world for kids. I thought everything around me changes and undergoing metamorphosis, little did I know that I, myself, is the big change.

 

What was the last movie you’ve watched?

What’s  “Now Showing” in your life ? or maybe “Coming Soon”?
