Blog Guelph: Set a Piece of Your Heart Aside


Trip to the bookstore!, originally uploaded by TheGiantVermin.

O, Friday Ryder, I've missed you so. So patient and all-seeing a beast that you are.

I hope my chosen triad of very distinct shots today appeals to your sense of wonder. They can coax you to look very closely,  perhaps to grasp some possible depth of meaning. To suggest that you fully open your eyes and discover the hidden gems, in order to truly see what message lies below, if any.

Or within, for that matter.

So then, peer into the heart of what is there.
Interpret the motivation behind what you are seeing. 
Are there flaws? 
Untruths? 
Self-aggrandizement? 
Have you really "seen it for what it is"?
Is it as plain as the nose on your face?  

Food for thought though, where all this intense scrutinizing can lead.
And very, very deep.

Speaking of leading, I'm "leading" a Jane's Walk - in honour of the great urbanist Jane Jacobs - and would love you to come along. Let's look carefully for those hidden wonders to be found downtown. Here's a bit about the Guelph Specific Walks, including mine, entitled Downtown Re/View: A Photographic Perspective.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Mother's Day coming this Sunday. 3 cheers (and more) to those lovely, loving, hardworking women. But set a small piece of your heart aside for those without mothers, and those who could not mother.
They're out there, sometimes hidden from view.
