It doesn't matter how you look at it

Two years ago I took this photograph (it is cropped here for obvious reasons). Now this lady will have a child in ten days from today. The skull of a sheep in her hands then, and now there is the transformation for a new aspiring life.
It is a miracle how these things happen.

Thanks Laila,
I have a whole series - but it is not for me to post them here.
The theme then was called "sunburstgem", hence the name of my blog.

Hey bro - Your blog is very impressive! Hope you and family are doing well.

Zee said...

We are all doing well, Al. The home fires are burning and the house is still standing. Hope you all down there in PA had a good slide into the New Year!

nice take...
There is a resemblance of the skull shape and her body..did you notice?

A very subtle image and beautifully composed. A life well lived developes compassion and harmony with the natural world.

btw: I do like your new blog image of yourself but the windswept blond was pretty cool too.

Intriguing photo and a good story. A friend of mine gave me a small carved wooden fertility symbol when she returned many years ago from Ghana. Within weeks we conceived the guy who is my 20 year old son. The carving is in my room still. (The vasectomy probably negates some of its power.)

MONE
Yes Mone, I had that skull in my car. Not that I ride around with bones all the time - but I do collect them.
I asked her to hold it ... the resemblances are clear but also polar.

SUSAN, I wish I could post the whole image and a few more - but I really can't at this point.
What is that "btw" all about? You'd rather have the windswept pic up? For you I'll change it any day.

GARY ... there is lots I could add to this story, fertility or not. How are you these days, rejuvenated and fertile?

Zee-

I often visit your interesting blog via 'maison madcap' and left a rather long comment today at your cancerous growth/conpiracy post.

I also enjoy these beautiful nudes you post now and again, so I thought I'd send you a link to the few I've posted at Earth home garden over the years.

Here 'tis

You'll have to copy & paste it.

(I tried copying & pasting it from here and hade to retype in the word nudes for some reason)
