In reality, the picture was created from a recent sunset picture with clouds of snow fog swirling up from the mountain.
After the better part of a day looking deeply into the elements, discovering the joys of photo negatives and color manipulation, and listening intently for the words calling out to me, I heard a still small voice…
“Does your mind seem to swirl
with blue smoke of confusion?
Step out and see past
where that smoke seems to curl.
See, life’s an illusion,
you’ll come through it at last.”
You see, when we can rise above a situation and see past it, we often see the confusion is only illusions the world uses to cloud our minds. Then we can understand we can do and be anything we choose.
