… February is fading and March is coming, spring arrives in not that long, Iris will be emerging from the soil and let loose an unbelievable display of beauty for a few short weeks. Last year I got a few nice shots including this one of a beauty in my neighbors yard. Did I play with this photo? Sure did, and I kinda like it … a wonderful world albeit it a very temporary world … but then again our “real world” is a very temporary world based on another scale of time. When I was a kid and thinking on the Big Bang theory I used to wonder if when we sent up beautiful firework displays, if millions of little worlds formed, had life forms develop on them and cycle through all of evolution before being extinguished in milliseconds. It seems like that to us, but perhaps our own universe’s existence is as limited to an outside intelligence who just set off it’s own fireworks display … just saying … because our life spans are so short it seems like everything is forever, but it is not.
