In all candor sometimes it is the most austere things that bring about the most unusual beauty. Well that’s how I’m feeling today. When I look around— maybe more than I should—and see a budding flower, a small pool of water, and the very simple, gentle way the wind blows, it just reminds me of how humble I ought to be. Sometimes I see things that so overwhelm me that my brain goes into hyper-speed, yet at the same time my body is as calm as a magnificent bird soaring miles high riding on a thermal blast of air. Think the bird is at peace?
Indeed the most awesome sights that pass through my eyes are in reality, the down to earth majesty of human form, nature, a great photograph, some impromptu occurrence that is unplanned, yet perfectly timed.
I find that the latter—unplanned and unexpected—are those situations that no matter what happen are always received well, inasmuch as I don’t feel any harm is bestowed upon the recipient. Oh contraire! Many, many times throughout history our images and perceptions are conceived purely by happenstance.
Being received well, of course, means that no one is hurt, injured, or embarrassed; rather, there almost seems to be an open innocence about it—in fact, one of the few times that nature has her way with us where we actually laugh!
As far as the models and actresses I’ve mentioned this is only but a small tip of a huge iceberg! On my honor Canada really has some international folks wondering! I just read an article vis-a-vie Elmer Olsen and just how many marvelous ladies he has “found” or in model terminology, “discovered.” The interesting part of the article that I feel compelled to share is that the author was from Australia, the photographer from Spain, and the piece was about EO and his eye for talent. Of course at the time they briefly mentioned Daria Werbowy, because the feature was about Madeleine Barrevoets.I’ve thought for years that it must be something in the water up there! But who knows, maybe Canada is so far ahead of the rest of the world that what is making so many simply stunning women is genetic enhancers. Who really knows? I will say this without prejudice, I’ve yet to meet a real superstar Canadian that wasn’t the most humble, dignified, and genuine person that imbues the feeling of gratitude. (I know, I know, I haven’t met Avril; maybe, the language is part of her act???)
