Paths to Love – Cut Red Cabbage Analogy – Picture to Ponder v6 – issue 46

Today’s Featured Photo

cut red cabbage expressing love

Cut half of a red cabbage with the word “Love” added with Photoshop Elements.

It’s another of the vegetables from last week’s raw fruits and veggies program I was following and continue to do so this week. For those who are detail oriented, the cabbage is on a Lucite cutting board placed across a narrow stainless steel sink. The scratches are from knife cuts over the years.

To me the image looks like a maze. Ultimately all routes seem to start and end from the center core, so I’ve labeled it “Love.”

Thanksgiving Practices –
In the spirit of tomorrow’s U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving, today’s Picture to Ponder brings you my heartfelt gratitude for your being in my life as a reader, thus a friend. I appreciate the contribution you make to my life, which ripples out and positively affects others in my world and yours.

If you are celebrating the holiday, I wish you a day of love and the experience of full appreciation for those with whom you may be celebrating. The same wish holds for all in this community.

For those who may have never had the following practice, I invite you to go around the table and invite each person there to express one thing for which they are grateful. Years back I told a resistant nephew that it could be as simple as a movie he enjoyed. Though he muttered a response, he still talks about the experience of the family’s sharing.

If you have special practices and/or group experiences of expressing gratitude, I’d love you to share them below in the comments section.

Self-Reflecting Queries
As I studied the photo last week, the curved, zigzag and circuitous lines, reminded me of the many paths I’ve taken, and continue to travel, in my life. Looking at it from this perspective, it’s reassuring to know they all land in a solid place.

Instead of putting out any specific queries, I invite you to study today’s cut cabbage imagery.

Is there anything that you see that’s analogous with your life? Is the any kind of positive message you get from it?

If so, I invite you to share it with us in the comments below.

And, as always remember to have fun with this, as well as in observing the fruits and vegetables you may be cutting up.
