on-man-&-nature

I can’t get my guitar wet! What should I do?

I can always tell when an architect loves nature. The Ticino region in the south of Switzerland is a prime example of how man and nature can live in harmony.

i hate that you call urself a hedge witch when your clearly not one. hedge witches are all about divination and astral travel and stuff like that

I’ve been reading this opinion a lot lately and I don’t think that’s true at all. Like where are people getting this? I don’t really think you can pin it down to just divination.
Yeesssss, we are practiced in divination but there’s a lot more to it than that and a lot of it is the importance of nature. In my opinion, it is a solitary practice of a being who loves the Earth. In everything the Earth gives us we give back, it gives us healing plants and in return, I can make medicines for your body or your mind. I then care for the Earth, I tend to the gardens and pick up litter, I walk more than I drive, I give it all the love it gives me back. And I definitely use those herbs and flowers in divination, I mean I make my own runes from wood I find and earth scrying is a long time favorite.
I don’t know man, I’m just a little stoned and rambling because I love the Earth and I feel like that’s important. I just really like trees and they help me see things I couldn’t typically see and I think that shits dope.

Edit: @orriculum mentioned “crossing the hedge” to the astral, didn’t even know that was a saying but that could be a possible explanation to the confusion! I learn something new every day.

I’m not sure where I’m going with my subject matter at the moment. I’m really liking shapes, black and white and very flat compositions, emphasizing that a photograph is only creating the illusion of three dimensions. My usual preoccupations seem in check, windows, decay, time, man and nature etc etc. I’m feeling like the last few black and white digital shots have a nice “boring document” feeling to them. Documenting the inane, in an online world where things are made as extreme as possible to gain attention. Embracing boredom can be so brilliant, maybe I can find some beauty in mundane.

“Time is a flat circle”

The True Nature of a Man.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

15. “As for man, when his Lord tries him by giving him honour and bounties, then he says (in exultation): “My Lord has honoured me.”
16. But when He tries him by straitening his means of life, he says: “My Lord has humiliated me!”
17. Nay! But you treat not the orphans with kindness and generosity (i.e. you neither treat them well, nor give them their exact right of inheritance)!
18. And urge not one another on the feeding of Al‑Miskeen (the poor)!
19. And you devour the inheritance — all with greed.
20. And you love wealth with much love.
21. Nay! When the earth is ground to powder.
22. And your Lord comes with the angels in rows.
23. And Hell will be brought near that Day. On that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance (then) avail him?
24. He will say: “Alas! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my life!”
25. So on that Day none will punish as He will punish.
26. And none will bind (the wicked, disbelievers and polytheists) as He will bind”

[Surah al-Fajr 89: Ayah15-26]

I would have traded my A’s for his B’s and charisma in a heartbeat. I don’t say this to point out his flaws but to try and offer some perspective. Everything he does seemed to be effortless, even now; watching him leap around a stage in front of thousands of people, he seems untroubled and free from self-doubt. It’s easy to be jealous - he’s one of those people who are just good at things, we all know one - but to assume this means he takes it all for granted, or doesn’t worry, or try, would be oversimplifying him unfairly. His bundles of talent are a mixture of natural ability and intense heart.
