It's Complicated!

it's complicated and…
…getting even more complicated!

But not everything is complicated. Life doesn't need to be complicated. Does it??

This pair: not complicated!
This guy: same, very uncomplicated
uncomplicated… and CUTE!
Not so cute AND he wants some of the action…

Omens, Gnomons and Agnostic Prophets

Celestial portent: a comet in the middle of the afternoon!

An astrologer consults his charts

His city is a fortress for education and contemplation

The palm trees study their reflections in a pool of water.

The complex compound is a city unto itself. A marvel of medieval marquetry.

The end.

Seasonal thoughts

"C’est assez vescu pour autruy, vivons pour nous au moins ce bout de vie. Ramenons à nous et à nostre aise nos pensées et nos intentions. Ce n’est pas une legiere partie que de faire seurement sa retraicte ; elle nous empesche assez sans y mesler d’autres entreprinses. Puis que Dieu nous donne loisir de disposer de nostre deslogement, preparons nous y ; plions bagage ; prenons de bon’heure congé de la compaignie ; despetrons nous de ces violentes prinses qui nous engagent ailleurs et esloignent de nous."

"We have lived enough for others; let us at least live out the small remnant of life for ourselves; let us now call in our thoughts and intentions to ourselves, and to our own ease and repose. 'Tis no light thing to make a sure retreat; it will be enough for us to do without mixing other enterprises. Since God gives us leisure to order our removal, let us make ready, truss our baggage, take leave betimes of the company, and disentangle ourselves from those violent importunities that engage us elsewhere and separate us from ourselves."

from "Of Solitude" – Montaigne, Essays
