With the help of some fabulous solar spots, I’ve been able to spend a lot of time after dark in my garden, lately. Little by little, the cluttered chaos out there is beginning to conform to at least a few of my wishes. Last night, I reassembled this sculpture I made for my best beloved a long, long time ago. I usually take it down in winter, to prevent it from blowing down. This year, it took me until now to put it back up. The photo only shows half of it, but I liked how it looked, silhouetted against the lit up wall. And, of course, I also like what I don’t have to look at when darkness falls – all those homeless plants sitting around in their pots.
At night, all that stuff fades into oblivion, and all I need to do is sit there, enjoy the cool air, and admire the clutter elimination work done by the spot lights. Come to think of it, the spots work a little like my camera – it focuses on whatever I direct it to, and eliminates the rest. For now, that’s all I need. I’m not quite ready for the wide, open scenes yet. Not yet, anyway. Slowly and steadily getting closer to that point, though, and that makes me happy!
