Hemispherical Living …

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live in a hemisphere?

Nor do I. But since I brought it up let’s have a look.

The Thinking Beetle.

Hmmm! That feels … truncated, like half a sphere would.

Maybe it’s spherical living that’s over-rated, living in a head for instance.

Ooh, what’s that?

What’s it like living in a spherical head then?

Well, first of all, can I actually fit in a head I can imagine? I don’t think so.

Oh, never mind …

And there’s the catch, thinking of living in or as anything is very limiting.

Straight down to business.

Thinking is limiting …

        I know, harmful to the health!

          … if it leads to worry, for sure. And it often does because it’s random (undisciplined) thinking and there is a propensity for it to spiral into some negativity.

    hard to imagine being any of them. perhaps it is like living in my wee log cabin but carrying it around with me….
    such amazingly beautiful captures of each of them.

      You don’t have to imagine. Next time you worry/think that’s the limit to your being, if it is. That’s a pretty crowded world, isn’t it.

      Thanks Tammie.

    Excellent photos, Mark . . . I never realized the extent of texturing/design on a beetle’s “shell”.

      Thanks Jan. The same can be found all the way to the non-extant beginning – if there is such a thing.

    I think these are among my favorites of your photos. I really like the detail, color. texture, and composition of these photos. Also enjoyed the commentary.

    Great ones, I kept thinking they were as yummy and as colorful as candy, making me hungry, until I saw that last one. :) Kids will love this! Thank you.

    How awesome to capture, the beetle pooping over the edge! No privacy when you’re around hahaha!! At least it’s not thinking, only doing!!
