Mosaic Mercredi

I am slightly somewhat bereft to notice that I allowed the entire month of November to pass without the thought and good grace to adorn it with a 'Mosaic Mercredi'.  Sigh.  I only hope this one can somehow make up for it.

1. Manta Ray, 2. ., 3. Lightness, 4. chandelier, 5. Cape Nelson Lighthouse, 6. brain coral wall piece, 7. qwerty, 8. Untitled, 9. Manta ray flap
My thoughts are bracketed by Manta Rays.  What amazing majestic creatures they are!  Winging through the ocean with fluidity and grace.  The other images were inspired by this 'lightness' of touch.  The sculpture of the 'Flight from Pompeii' - oh my word - the skill of creating fabric from stone so that it appears almost weightless and billowing with the force of the little families departure from a desperate scene of devastation.  Elsewhere in the mosaic, the lightness of an olive leaf balanced on skin, the luminosity of a crystal chandelier (another thing of weight that looks weightless, as if it is just make from light and sparkle).  And the typewriter, perhaps a little backwards reference to the previous post - but relevant also as I often think that thoughts and words and quotes are perhaps the lightest of things that we carry with us.

Until the next time, tread lightly mes amis.
