TODAY'S PHOTO -
unidentified plant or tree in the gardens of the
American Orchid Society in Delray Beach.
With an intent to energize
myself with the beauty that is there and to get
some new photos, we visited the American Orchid
Society's greenhouse and gardens yesterday. In reviewing
the photos this AM, I started for one of the orchid
pictures and was stopped by the photo above.
Given I had a some kind of physical sensation when
it came up on my screen, I'm following my intuition
and including it here.
At first I had a complete sense of peace. In looking
at it again, I'm finding it somewhat "jarring."
Given that green and red (in this case, pink) are
opposites on the color wheel, I'm not surprised.
I am intrigued as to why I keep going back to look
at what would seem to be a simple photo, "some
leaves, albeit different from the usual colors."
It's now in your court. I'd love to "hear"
how you respond to this photo.
In the meantime, I am going to ask subscriber Lea
Cioci for her "analysis". Lea is another
of the YOU*Uers (below) who is doing a free focus
group. Hers is entitled "Color Your
Life: Understanding Color to Enhance Your Life"
- eBook Sample.
READER COMMENTS ON THE LAST ISSUE - Issue
Apologies to anyone who might have opened PICTURE

the images. Unbeknownst to me, eteletours.com was
down for a time. The photo is now visible when you

"The initial, one could say "easy,"
reaction is to see a bird with a gracefully curved
neck. Continued observation, however, revealed a
somewhat wizened man with an odd headdress and a
rather flowing beard. His aura is of serenity and
wisdom. One arm is stretched out, perhaps making
brush strokes in some Oriental form.
In a more macabre interpretation, he could be a
ghost. (That ties in with
the dying leaf.) I'm beginning to be quite intrigued
by fireflags myself.'" Mary Gray
