Been catching up some of my other projects. Like you guys and gals, creating balance in life is essential to me, and I’ve not always been the best at it, but never let it be said I’m not open to continually learning how to be better at it. Catching up other projects may lead to publishing some completely new things here soon… we’ll see!
As for this shot, I like doing macros or close-ups of flowers. I tend to imagine all sorts of images buried in their designs. I call this one, “High Priestess of Soul” because it reminds me … well, of a High Priestess mesmerizing those who have come to see her.. The word soul, it seems, is never far from my lips, so I tossed it in there and what do you know? It all kind of fits to me!
I am once more indebted to my friend Keith over at Uncle Tree , for sparking my brain into recalling another High Priestess of Soul.
The one I speak of now possessed all the magical, mystical, and soulful energy and personality as my newly named orchid photograph. I speak of none other than the utterly remarkable Nina Simone.
Nina came into this world back in 1933, and left us in 2003. What she left behind musically is so far beyond the possibilities of my paltry and humble blog to attempt explaining, I leave those of you wishing to know a little more with a few links I think will help explain far better than I can.
For a full on breakdown of just what Nina Symone was about and continues, through her music, to be about, do the click thing here
I would be remiss to offer links and not have one of them offer the opportunity of a listening experience.This link will take you to the Mixcloud site of Rai Chaudhuri. Click here and see if you agree with the moniker given to Nina Symone early in her career, The High Priestess of Soul.
