Many times patterns catch our eyes and it is later that we realize different things than what brought us to take a photo. It is the same with human behaviors as I learn a new way to approach patients to help them make changes. I think this photo is unique as it is the roof in a wind chime factory I visited. The clear spaces are areas where there is no roofing material and the breeze comes through to occasionally move the chimes. In this room hung many different types of wind chimes and the soft sound of them ringing from the slow breeze brought in by the roofing design was a relaxing melody. This is one room that I could have made my own. The rest was an adobe hut in the shape of a half circle and the room itself was round with two arches on either side.
It was around two in the afternoon when I visited this area and it was one of the most comfortable places in the area. For a hot Arizona day it was the best place to stay. As you can see there are arches everywhere you look in the design and the color is strong enough to block the sun. I see a flower in the middle and arrows pointing different directions. This is like our minds as we contemplate change. Sort of like when we get older and some of our classmates or friends begin to die at early ages. It tends to make us think of our mortality. What changes would help us to live better, feel better and enjoy the music as in this adobe wind chime room as the wind makes the chimes change their movements.
I was not sure why I took this picture at first however I have so enjoyed visiting it again and again. I have not only been contemplating change but traveling again to explore. I live for the adventure and the unusual to catch my eye. Just as we all do as we review our pictures that we took for whatever reason. Keep clicking.
