Tales From My Garden: Stretching Her Natural Limits

 

…you dream that you open the gate

you step in the garden

again

where pleasure meets pain

where changing your mind is

too late…

my scorpio sun finds myself pondering a conspiracy theory...like what has so shifted in the world of nostaliga that your pictures have become so unbendingly monochromatic tones of black and grey and white?
vz-nostalgia: I think your scorpio sun is color blind, or has a limited color vision, Ms. Cherry Lane. smile Go to the Nostalgia archive and you'll see that I have a good balance of b&w and color photographs, including recent times. smile Nothing has shifted in the Nostalgia world, Ms. Lane. It is still as delightful as it is a total madness. smile You are welcome to open the gate. smile

It is only on the crazy fairground ride where you reach the definitive point at which "No...I don't want to!" becomes illegitimate.
vz-nostalgia: Is the crazy fairyground the only place, where changing your mind is too late, you can think of, Ray? smile

Nature's skylight stays firmly shut...
vz-nostalgia: Sure does, until someone who knows how to unlock it with a magic touch (or with a magic word) comes along. smile

Only a fool would change his/her mind when being invited to such a garden full of bliss. smile
vz-nostalgia: I see you are not this fool, Ms. Iris. smile
If stepping into the garden stopped all pain, I would step in and shut the gate firmly behind me! smile
vz-nostalgia: It's not so much about stopping pain, Ms. L, but rather turning pain to pleasure. smile
according to your archive the last burst of colour was the 27th of august- GIVE ME MY COLOUR FIX ALREADY! says the demanding scorpio.

thinks, and adds "Please?"
vz-nostalgia: ah, you are a color junkie, Ms. Cherry Lane. You should've told me this from the very beginning. smile Unfortunately for you, I can't be a reliable source of color in your life. You got to find the color of your life by searching it yourself, Ms. Lane. smile Photography might be a misleading way to search for it. smile Try human souls. Intelligent and cultured human souls. You might have better luck with that. smile If you can't find it in Australia, try somewhere else. smile
This has me thinking of the silvery angel wings of a character in a book I'm currently reading. How oh how do you make plant life look to beautifully metallic sometimes?
vz-nostalgia: You are the second person who mentioned angel wings today, Ms. Julie. smile
Must be the memory of days passed, when you were still an angel. smile
Great stretch...these lines seem to have more of a sensual meaning.
vz-nostalgia: I see it didn't take you long to figure this one out, Ms. Badulescu. smile

Schläft ein Lied in allen Dingen,
die da träumen fort und fort,
und die Welt hebt an zu singen,
triffst du nur das Zauberwort.

There is a song sleeping in all things
that dream on and on,
and the world begins to sing
if you can only find the magic word."
(Eichendorff)

I believe in that and I'm sure that you can "open the gate"... Yes, you are right: "pleasure meets pain", they belong together, and it is very difficult and mostly "too late" to 'change the mind', but nevertheless possible. -I'm an incorrigable optimist, and even in your picture I can see a little gap to come through - and there is a broad stripe of light, too - the structures of the leaves in your garden inspired you creating an impressive photo -and how exxcellent must be your English that you even can form rhymes!
vz-nostalgia: Herr Eichendorff had quite a creative mind with a tender view on the world, despite having a law degree. smile
Rhyming words is not a criterion of measuring one’s excellence in English, Ms. Philine. smile Delivering one’s thoughts in a precise, elegant, but simple way is, and I have a loooooooooong way to go to reach that. smile

vz-nostalgia: That's easier to achieve than you think, Mina: stop visiting Nostalgia. smile And if you can't stop, because you got hooked and want your weekly dose of Nostalgia, stop bitching, then. smile

PS. Bullshitting is one word, man. smile See, you learned something useful today, but I digress. smile
It would appear that all paths lead to the darkness of the heart... say it ain't so, Viktor!
vz-nostalgia: smile ... or mind. smile

I like the mystery in this light, like a vegetal fan with Erotica vibes.
vz-nostalgia: smile Be careful with those vibes, Ms. K@. smile
Groovy, if you scroll up and down fast it creates and optical illusion.. Great shot
vz-nostalgia: I see you dive into Nostalgia archive once a day, Ms. Gale. smile
