~ View From Inside North Head Lighthouse ~

In the many years I’ve enjoyed seeing this lighthouse from the outside, yesterday, for the first time I was on the inside. Now open for visitors, the structure is being restored to it’s original condition.

After entering at ground level, a narrow stairway spirals to the top. 

Windows along the stairway, covered over for many years, frame the view South                   and                  North

Miles and miles of Pacific Ocean looking West.

From the top of North Head Lighthouse – beyond the rocky shore in the foreground – Long Beach stretches in the distance. An inverse image of my 6/13/18 Wordless Wednesday post!

~ CFFC: Arch, Dome or Half Circle ~

Dune runes always fascinate me – how the wind blowing at ground level moves bent stems of dune-grass creating natural sand drawings.

And, in the bright morning light there is the addition of lovely arched shadows!

~ Dancing Wu Li Master ~ WPC: Twisted ~

On May 6, as Jello and I were on our walk, this parrot tulip in a neighbor’s yard stopped me in my tracks!

It brings to my mind the title of Gary Zukav’s book,  The Dancing Wu Li Masters.

“…the Chinese term for physics is ‘Wu Li’, or “patterns of organic energy.” Zukav, among others, conceptualized ‘physics’ as the dance of the Wu Li Masters – teachers of physical essence.”

And what a perfect excuse to hear again a favorite song-poem by Joni Mitchell.
