Holding On… Again

In The Yard, Squared

Something interesting happened yesterday. When I woke I found one of my images had been selected for Explore on flickr. This happens once in a while, either an algorithm or an individual selects an image to be highlighted in the Explore section on the flickr site. I’m not sure how the image is selected but when it happens it does draw extra attention. I won’t lie, it feels good when it happens, but it is not something I aim to achieve.

The interesting part for me is the image that was selected is from 2018. Which to me indicates an algorithm is at work when selecting for Explore. That’s OK. It doesn’t lessen the exposure of the image nor anyone’s enjoyment of it. What I like about it is based on the image selected, a dandelion! One of my “weed” images, ha! 🙂

The whole event did get me thinking about the image and that brought out the following…

Burdens of old thoughts
Memories, links in the chain
The past has a weight

Today, this moment
Realization emerges
A future revealed

Tomorrow shines bright
New journeys free the spirit
Stop your holding on

Holding On
