Insights

From years of spiritual pursuit and personal reflection, I have come up with these 5 insights.

These are “Insights” by Mary Mikawoz

“Anger is about unmet expectations.”
“Depression is anger turned inwards.”
“Anxiety is worrying about the future.”
“We all need goals – mini steps in life.”
“Live in the present – that is all we have.”

Life and Death

Life And Death

This is my interpretation of life and death. While there is life, there is frivolity and fun. There is growth and lessons learned. In death, there is the shucking of the physical body and the soul returns to the ethers.

Wild Horses

Wild Horses

These are wild horses in the deserts of Arizona near Mesa. They are absolutely beautiful amongst the natural vegetation of the area. I like the way two of them are resting while one is standing tall and proud.

Green Grapes

Green Grapes

These green grapes were growing under a canopy of wood trellises. This photograph is in memory of my Dad and his ability to grow any plants, indoors and outdoors. He had a trellis in our back yard that grew wonderful grapes. The great thing about grapes other than raisins is that they also produce wine.

Sleeping Cheetah

Here is a close-up of a sleeping cheetah. Isn’t he marvellous? He looks so serene and peaceful. Doesn’t he remind you of a domestic cat the way he sleeps?

Frozen Wheat

This was during an end of winter/beginning of spring drive.  Beside this frozen shafts of wheat were spots of spring starting with green grass popping up.  I like the curvature of the wheat as it wisps and twirls with the wind’s direction.  I like the quiet beauty of the wheat that just won’t quit despite it being out of season.  I also like the way parts of the snow look blue in the shadows.

Thistle Me This!

Poem and Photography By Mary Mikawoz

“Thistle me this!

Thistle me that!

The firmer you place us together

The harder it is for you to tear us apart!!!”

I was inspired to write this poem because of the inspiration that George D. Mestral received in developing Velcro from the concept of thistles in how they work and how they cling to you by observing how burdock and bur seeds attached themselves to his dog’s furs and to his clothing.  He examined them under a microscope discovering all the little hooks and then put it into action.

This Swiss electrical engineer thought of the idea in 1941 and invented the idea of Vclcro in 1948.  Did you also know that Velcro fasteners made of Teflon loops, polyester hooks, and glass backing are used in Space Stations in outer space?

From  a personal point of view, my family went to Poland when I was 6 years old. That summer we visited a relative’s farm.  I remember running through some normal fields and then realizing that I had beautiful little flowers stuck all over and on my skirt when my sister pointed them out to me.  I thought they were pretty until I tried to take them off and they stuck firmly to my clothing and pierced my fingers.  Then I thought they were nasty but now I just see them for the beauty that they are in this photograph that I took.

Blue Mountains

Blue skies, blue mountains, blue borders it all.  These are the incredible Rocky Mountains found in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.  They are stoic and ever-lasting in their beauty as they grace the Canadian landscape.  Wisps of gentle white clouds linger along the mountain peaks.  At the base you can see the coniferous trees growing and yet on top you see the white snow and ice.  I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed being in their presence and taking their photographs.
