Though we’re not prisoners,
a tiny entity holds us
as a way to fight it,
or does it?
Where do we focus?
or do we see the full picture?
Whatever the picture though
look for good…
So am I looking in or am I looking out?
…and does it really matter?

freedom is in the mind

Hmmm, perhaps you/we are looking inside out.
All of the windows along the back of our apartment have bars, but there’s only an alley, graffiti, squirrels and raccoons to look out at! Still, I stare.
Great post, Marina. I’ll be back to listen to the music. I’m listening to Haydn (Oannes) right now!
A bit of a cheat… it’s actually outside looking in as we walk with Hera cross this beautiful fenced land where we sometimes go in and I let her run free. But now, the grass is so high, it’s not a great idea letting her in! [of course she thinks otherwise!]
Can’t keep the animals down!
Nope… and it’s paradise to her as we can’t see her! The bushes and grass are about 1,5meters high!
Inspired post! 😼
Ah, thank you, my friend! 🙂
Beautiful photo’s and verse , dear Marina, thought pondering questions. It’s all in the perspective of how we look at things where we might find the answers, I think. Have a lovely day, my dear friend. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Yes it is, my dearest friend. Wishing you a lovely Monday and week ahead! 🤗😘😘
You too, dear Marina xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
The shifting perspectives show us how many ways there are to look at or for something – love the last one especially. How appropriate to find a Judas tree (aka Forest Pansy; Red bud tree). Proper name – Cercis – You will recognise its Greek origins κερκις (kerkis)
And since you are so musical, have you heard Mark Knopfler’s Redbud Tree’?
Oh, Laura, thank you so much! That’s my fave too [and 3 – same perspective 😉 ]. These trees are everywhere at this time, so thankfully I can see them on my limited doggy walks round our home. You know how sometimes you do things but don’t realize why… well, this is exactly how this worked. I see these trees every day but today [yesterday] I decided to photograph it and post it. I did realize it is Judas tree, right after I posted! 😉
Thank you for the song. I hadn’t heard it before. Not being a dire fan, I hadn’t heard many of his songs and I’m so glad you pointed this out, as it’s so sweet and beautiful.
Christos Aneste! for next week and stay safe and well Marina. 🙏
Thank you, my dear David!!! Happy Easter Sunday to you, my friend! 🙏😀
Beautiful! Stay safe and sane!
Thank you, my dear friend…. yes… I think safe is easier than sane! 😉 🤣
You replied to this comment.
Thank you, my friend! I’ll keep your wish for next week when our Easter is…. Happy Easter to you! 🐣
Ah, of course! Please keep it safe for a week 😉
Oh, will do!!!! 😉 🙏😀
Ah, thank you, my dear Sue! Have a beautiful Sunday! xo
Thank you, Marina!
Beautiful photos, wonderful thoughts and questions in verse, Marina. Do you remember “Inside Looking Out” by then Animals and the cover of it by Grand Funk Railroad?
Oh… I remember Burdon but not GFR I’ll check it out!!! Thank you, my friend. Have a lovely Sunday.
GFR’s versions slow and drawn out. I like Burdon’s much better.
…I agree with you!
Ah, thank you, my dear friend! 🙂🙏
