Zen Monday: #86


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. There's no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean.

I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the intellectual path of the discussion, because when I get in there everything goes downhill.

As I post each new Zen Monday photo I add
a label to last week's to identify it if necessary.

Latino Heritage said...

The Latino Heritage parade and jamaica took place at Washington Park for the first nine years of its existence. Lalo Gurerrero, Dolores Huerta, Raul Rodriguez, and the group Quetzal were Grand Marshals while we were there. We had a 19th century wedding as part of one of our celebrations. The wedding was performed following the traditions that would have taken place during the 1840s. They were married under the bridge in the picture.

Monday wouldn't be Monday without "Zen Monday."

The Time Traveler's wife finally works out a way to join him.

Is this like those crop circle thingies?

Petrea said...

I love that Roberta witnessed a 19th century wedding in the park. I would like to see a pagan wedding here. Maybe that's what the flower circle is about.

Then again, maybe it's a crop circle left by aliens. I hope the aliens were at least married.

Pretty enough, & one may step inside—but, better, through, but never after moonrise, nor by a running stream … and never eat of food therefrom, if you would go home again unchanged. The delights of Færie are best perceived peripherally, when at all—& then at a fast run. Don't look! Keep going …

You know, certain mushrooms grow in a circle.

wv: herpers. Phew.

Petrea said...

Would they be the kind of mushrooms J is talking about, Vanda?

I need to eat more mushrooms for this one. Or fewer. I've lost count.

Lady J said...

I imagine it is some fairy way of getting people to take the time to enjoy nature. it seems so magical. almost Alice in Wonderland-ish. Probably because AIW is all over the place right now.

Gina said...

We just had a picnic in that very spot last Wednesday! Sadly, there weren't any magic rings there.

There were, however, copious amounts of mushrooms growing in the wood chips of the park playground...which I discovered after my 11 month old tired to devour them.

Ms M said...

An early Mayday celebration??

Petrea said...

Hiker, apparently J has had his mushrooms. Maybe the ones that grow there (see Gina's comment).

Hi Lady J--I like your interpretation. Fairies are known to tempt people to do all sorts of outlandish things.

Gina, good picnic spot! Though I don't recommend the produce.

Ms. M, why not? It's been a bit cold by our standards, but maybe not by yours!
