Be ridiculous.

Saved by the bell pepper.

I haven’t felt like taking photographs for a long time. I did try, but always looked at the ones I took and went, “bleh!”, because that is what it was … just bleh! There was no sparkle, no ‘wow’ … nothing.

Who knows why this happened? Maybe my muse left the building, maybe I couldn’t see beauty anymore? Something was up, or missing or lost … until yesterday when I cut open a green bell pepper to put in my salad and there it was … beauty.

The seeds hadn’t come loose and scattered all over the inside of the pepper; instead it lay in perfect, velvety little pearl drops inside this luscious jade basket. I wanted to lick it, it looked that good.

I got my camera instead.

Seeking Beauty (by William Henry Davies)
Cold winds can never freeze, nor thunder sour
The cup of cheer that Beauty draws for me
Out of those Azure heavens and this green earth —
I drink and drink, and thirst the more I see…
