Thinking Outside The Box - Grass - Quote - Black Elk - Round



This color photograph was changed to a black and white format and then it was cropped.

"Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle.   The sky is round and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball and so are all the stars.  The wind, in its greatest power, whirls.  Birds make their nests in circles for theirs is the same religion as our.   The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle.  The moon does the same and both are round.   Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing and always come back again to where they were.   The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood.   And so it is in everything where power moves."
~ Black Elk, Oglala Sioux (1863-1950)

Clematis is blooming in our yard.  The flower looks like it is made of wax it is just so beautiful.   In my humble opinion, the center always looks like spider legs to me.    I just love the color purple.    The white petals makes the color purple pop....don't you think so?

Found this pond on a gravel road that is less traveled.  While getting ready to take the shot, I heard peeper frogs(http://www.seagrant.wisc.edu/frogs/peeper.html). I think I will go back and take more photographs of this wonderful spot when I'm in the area again.   It reminds me how small I am in this here world.
