Are you inclined to find patterns in things? It happens to me.
I even find patterns in patterns. Have you noticed on some peoples' Tumblrs that there are patterns of certain types of images that arrive clumped up together? Do you think that they emerge sort of organically?
Or do you think that whoever is posting them has saved them up in order to show them together, in order to curate them for you?
Most of these images came from Sophie Munns' SeedCapsules site.
Strictly speaking they were not clumped together. But as I chose them, and they showed up in my "storage area", I realized that I had also selected them according to a pattern. That was still slightly different from Sophie's. Entirely unconsciously.
Life is funny, isn't it? I recently heard an interview with a man who had identified a flow theory of physics. What do you know about physics? Do you think that he's right? That everything in our universe evolves and emerges as part of a flow?
I think it's lovely that the word "flow" is also a part of "flower".

Hmmmmmmmmm. I'm having a bit of a ruminate. Can you hang in there with me?
Nadine, aka, "Little Wolf" (here), is a someone who is a lively ruminator. (And stunningly, inspiringly so. Don't be fooled that she calls herself a "librarian" during most of her daytime hours.) She is also the painter of butterfly wings.
And we all know that a butterfly is never far from a flower.
I started this blog when I was transitioning from Hawaii to L.A. The name of the blog comes from a little alley in Paris.
I am an artist most of whose life has been spent "between two chairs" with my heart split and shared amongst many cultures and classes.
This blog is about the fleeting, the forgotten and the misunderstood.
I believe in the perfection of the natural of the natural world and the perfectability of the human world. Mostly, I believe in color - which is what you will find here.
