VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): "The important thing," said French naturalist
Charles DuBois, "is to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become."
Did he really mean *at any moment*? Like while we're in a convenience store buying beer? While we're lying in bed ready for sleep and reviewing the events of the day? While we're adrift in apathetic melancholy, watching too much TV and neglecting our friends?
At ANY moment?!
I say yes. At all times and in all places, Virgo--especially this week--be ready to sacrifice what you are for what you could become.
I can't tell you how much the above has been on my mind.
I really love this photo. It is really subtle and even caught me by surprise....a really sharp depth of focus. And prolly, because I'm familiar with buddhism, with rupas, with mudras, with this kind of accoutrement... it really hits home in an ahhhh lovely way.
But not so much with the flickr community, who didn't leave a single comment!
I've been on Flickr now for three years and have lived terms of being a newbie and old skool and popular and just trying to break in. Sometimes the weird "burden" of producing a "hit photo" has weighed on me no matter how hard I tried to say "nuh-uh no it doesn't." So there is a part of me that says, "okay. alright. no comments" and another part of me that kinda sorta quietly freaks out and thinks I better put up something else really quick.
No matter. I, personally, really like it. So I think I'm going to try to ride out the storm of needing to please and be constantly validated. :)
