HALTED

HALTED – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

This is a digital design of some important words and thoughts. I have been using HALT as an acronym to help me decide when to make decisions. It stands for waiting if you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired. Personally, I think the psychological world and the counselling worlds have done well with this acronym but I thought more was needed, so I added the ED to make HALT into HALTED. The E stands for Emotional and the D stands for Depressed. In either of these cases, I think it is important to put decision-making on hold until you have calmed down and are not in the grips of any of these elemental emotions and feelings.

I feel like I am adding my two cents worth to an already good concept and making it even better. I feel is an improvement to letting your logic and intuition cohabit together. I have put in images of Arrêt, Stop and Halt.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Ropes That Bind

Ropes That Bind

I took this close-up photograph of a rope on a dock. It is used to harness and wrap up boats that have come ashore out of the waters. For safety sake, they are needed to connect and anchor to land. 

To me, they represent the human spirit and how we are connected as souls. It represents the cords or attachments we have to other people that bind us together. It is how I see my love for certain people in this world. It is strong and thick as my wrist – woven and connected from my heart to theirs.  

Although there may have been adversity and minor tears, it remains strong and healthy. Relationships are manifestations and reflections of how committed we are to making things work through all types of weather and circumstances. 

Keep safe and strong through the howling winds and tumultuous waters!

Cute Dolphin

Cute Dolphin

I was thinking of how much I like to travel to new places around the world. It doesn’t look like we will be able to do so this year due to the corona virus pandemic. 

This is a photograph I took of a cute Bottlenose dolphin in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It is adorable. She looks like she is smiling and enjoying life. 

According to Wikipedia, “Bottlenose dolphins, the genus Tursiops, are the most common members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphin. Molecular studies show the genus contains three species: the common bottlenose dolphin, the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin, and the Burrunan dolphin.”

Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump

This is the world famous Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains near Fort McLeod, Alberta. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981. It is part of the history of the Blackfoot people and culture. 

According to Wikipedia and the Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Interpretive Centre, “The buffalo jump was used for 5,500 years (some say as much as 12,000 years ago) by the indigenous peoples of the plains to kill buffalo by driving them off the 11 metre (36 foot) high cliff.” 

According to legend, it wasn’t because of the buffalo’s heads smashing over the cliffs that it received its name but because a young Blackfoot boy wanted to see the buffalo hunt and started to climb the cliffs but the kill was so great that year that he was crushed under the weight of the falling buffalo. It is for this reason that the location has its name.

Sunny Sunflower

Sunny Sunflower

The sunflower looks like the face a sun would have. It is bright and cheery with red, orange and yellow hues on its petals. I thought this would be a nice summer time photo to have to brighten us up as today is a dreary, rainy autumn day and we need that golden ray of sunshine. 

I feel as if it is saying “Hello World! Things will be better very soon. I promise.”

In Clover

I took this photograph in our yard. It is incredible how such small, beautiful plants and flowers can add so much to green grass. 

I learned today that the expression “In Clover” means prosperity and living well. It means financial abundance and having good fortune. I wish this for people around the world as we are all one and what affects one, affects us all.

Golden Eyes

I was able to get close to this tiger through the benefit of a glass partition. He was just relaxing and enjoying life. He is absolutely majestic and gorgeous. He has such golden eyes so that is what I have called this photograph.
