Our fate: turning gray, overripe, fading...

CC Jean Stimmell: 9/23/14
September 23, 2014: Thoughts while photographing milkweed along the Merrimack in the last light of a perfect fall day.

Looking at Milkweed from afar, we can clearly see her destiny, writ large in the ever-changing cycles of life: Turning gray, overripe, fading, soon to fertilize the ground – yet transcendently beautiful.

Clearly She has a larger fate: With the seeds of future generations already visible within her, poised to fly off and pollinate the Earth, isn’t she really merging with ALL?

If we look at ourselves from afar, isn't our fate the same?
