Download and mosaics

It took all morning to figure out how to download pictures to my laptop and even once figured out, it was excruciatingly slow. I’ll spare you the details but suffice it to say it was maddening.

I don’t need to store pictures on my laptop, so I may have to figure out how to select a few images here and there and plop them into a folder. That’s all I’d need to be able to blog from laptop. I’ve adapted well to posting from my phone, but my thumbs could use a break.

Soundtrack: Blind Faith, I Can’t Find My Way Home.

Here are three groups of mostly SoulCollage cards that feature ORANGE.* The above group addresses terror.

The mosaic below reveals sources of repair or sustenance. Top middle pictures a doll, not a SoulCollage card. Top left is a transparency of a Christian painting that I made on my printer. Bottom right shows portions of four cards.

And finally, the bottom grouping shows archetypal energies or concepts. There is a winter solstice card (top left), the angel of death (in a pale orange robe), a card of imagination (pictured as a fox and butterfly), and three surrender cards.

Lastly, I’ll note that in scrolling through pictures from last year, including my trip to Italy, I was struck by how in and among all those images of yellowish stucco and warm-toned wooden doors in Rome and Assisi, the only real orange popped in the quilts and collages I made during my visit. A ceiling at the Vatican (below) was a shining exception. The winter pix below are from prior years.

* ORANGE in response to Acey’s chakra exercises.

    (((Dee))) love the winter glow in your orange photos, is it really only last year when you were in Italy?! Rod uses Air Drop to move photos into my iMac instantly, the new OS Big Sur is a very sleek and clean interface, can highly recommend upgrading.

    have rediscovered my one and only chakra book; having read your previous post, I think I’m finally ready to start learning about them [bought the book in 1994, a life time ago] so I’ll be hopping over to Acey’s soon!
    love your juxtapositioned images, there’s so much to explore here
    we have not had real snow for several winters now
    your doll is awesome

      Not sure I will be continuing. Kind of tricky intense at a time when as an American I am holding my breath hoping to get through the next forty days.

        Huh. That’s an interesting take. So far as I know everyone else participating is American as well. Wishing you well Dee. Namaste

          Well Mo isn’t, really, and Saskia, if she signs on, isn’t. Anyway, thought about this a lot in the last few days and this is cursory response, not the whole response.

    have been sick with a non-covid virus and my brain must still be recovering. I mis-read surrender cards as surrender CATS. spent a good minute and a half scrutinizing the images in the second grouping for anything remotely feline so I could learn what ‘surrender cat’ actually IS. Then I went back and re-read your words. Am relieved. ‘surrender’ and ‘cat’ don’t go together in my mind.

    the bare branches of big trees … I do miss them at times … most everything here in Texas is still green and the live oaks won’t shed until spring

    I am equal parts fascinated and overwhelmed by how much I don’t know about chakras … and yes, the next 40-some days weigh heavily on my mind
