Worlds within Worlds

Enter the world of "Let's Pretend" -- allowing one's mind to accept what it knows is impossible -- suspending disbelief . What is the opposite of this? Real worlds that are within worlds, even a dream that turns to reality ten years later, are both within us yet elsewhere... 

and are not "pretend". Worlds within worlds are reality.

Suspending Belief

Worlds within Worlds. WWW - you thought it meant world wide web. Submerge yourself in a tropical sea and a world within a world opens up. It is surreal.

We all suspend belief. How could we live otherwise?

Fields Fallow

Fields lie fallow after the last crop has been harvested -- the naturally seeded flowers, blossoms of August, lend them fragrance and colour. Some call them weeds.

Fields Fallow #2

Houses also lie fallow after the sale of the farm when even the rented field no longer fits the economy. Spruce trees appear where farms flourished.

Fields Fallow #1

Homes, once lit with fires that were tended, have fallen into disuse.

Tidal pools in estuaries flanked by headland and inlets, move in a constant refrain of water and land, of land and water. A big sky, a cloudy sky, reflects on water.

There is a timelessness to these reflections of light and a knowledge that this will continue, orchestrated without a will of its own.
