The world as gray

Losing contrast,

A washed-out vision,

Puzzled into shades of neutral,

We live in gray world,

Cultivating boredom,

Unmoored from the distraction of vibrant colors,

Captivated by the texture.

Starting from zero

The past, nonexistent,

The future, unmoored from reality and irreality,

What will be, will be right now extending into the present,

Forever trapped in the concept of nothingness,

Ascending into a good day,

Descending into the good night.

A day for unknowns

Unschedule time,
Plan for a day of unknowns,
Dream as you like,
Pick a direction,
Run for it,
Tame the fear,
Dance with it.

The window within

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset
Photo by Wells Baum (India 2014)

A restless creative mind, scatterbrained with curiosity and ruminating fecundity.

Where to look? What to see? Which to internalize and reinvent?

The window’s aperture compels focus, into an adventure that forces you to look outside your own existence.

While U wait

Anticipating the wait,

Waiting for the anticipation.

What is anticipation without the wait?

It is all a matter of timing, in sum.

The waiting keeps us on tenterhooks.

So why the rush…to nowhere?

To be close to the texture of things

All photos by Wells Baum (@bombtune)

I walked through woods, botanical gardens, and autumnal light-filled streets spotting the hybridity of green and colored plants, swamps, leaves, and vines trying to grasp a sense of texture that brings a sense of play to the air.

The peaceful taste of daily experience relaxes the texture of the human mind.
