Squinting

July 03, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

The magnolia trees are blooming again. Actually, the trees have continued to bloom since open blossoms first appeared more than a month ago. However, it does seem like there are bloom cycles when there are an abundance of blooms and this one is evidently the peak of one of those bloom cycles. I have shared my visual fascination with magnolia blooms previously. My eye is caught by the image after the bloom has faded and the petals will soon fall to the ground.

This blossom is far past its blooming peak and assumed a unique configuration. If you use your imagination, or just squint, possibly you can see the figure of a person. I notice that by squinting you are throwing away information that your eye can see when its fully open. Isn't it the same when you are ready to fall asleep? It's interesting to me that by discarding information, truth, we can see something that isn't there and make false conclusions. They may be entertaining fantasies, but it's not real.
