March Light

I found this intriguing passage, discussing ways to heighten creativity, in a yellowed paperback, Self-Renewal: The Individual and the Innovative Society:

When Alexander the Great visited Diogenes and asked whether he could do anything for the famed teacher, Diogenes replied, "Only stand out of my light."

The photograph was taken in my yard a few days ago. (Click on image to enlarge.) The quote was found on page 42. The March light is glorious. Stand back.

such clear light in this photo and the stark white doll figure perched up in the tree is quite compelling!

Thanks, Pam -- I've been carrying her around the neighborhood in search of fun settings.

Moving out of the way to let someone, or yourself, get on with things seems like a wonderful thing to aim for.

Hi, Annie. Yes, choosing to keep your light, your ideas and creativity, free from others' shadows.
