The Undiscovered Country by Lothrian
The Undiscovered Country
For my Florence on what would have been her 4th birthday.  The line is from Shakespeare:  '...the undiscovered country, from whose bourne no traveller returns.'

Please listen to this wonderful piece of music:…

I took up photography about seven years ago. A photograph is not necessarily the end product of the artistic process, it can be the start of something much much different.

Current Residence: England
Favourite genre of music: Rock/pop
Extended comment to the deviation 'Beyond':

What lies behind us ?  What is behind that door to the past that is so firmly shut ?  A life-long believer in re-incarnation, I would urge anyone with airy notions of attempting to discover what they may have been in a past life to think twice before they proceed.  Past-life regression, whether conducted by oneself or a third party, is always presented as something harmless, rather in the way that ouija boards are viewed by many - almost as a form of entertainment.  What might you have been in an other existence ?  Alexander the Great ?  Napoleon ?  JFK ?  Considering the vast number of humans that have ever lived, the chances of having been someone prominent, someone influential, someone who led an exciting or prosperous life are infinitessimal:  it is far more likely that in a past life you were part of the poor, downtrodden masses; maybe a victim of a war or horror that has been hidden from you for a particular reason - namely, that you could live the following life with a good prospect of mental peace.  That is not to deny that our past lives can filter down to us in the form of subconscious thoughts, habits, phobias - and this is the only real reason to ever try and peer through that doorway:  as a form of understanding and learning, not ego-boosting.  Once that door is cracked ajar, there is no going back, there is no return to blissful ignorance once you have glimpsed what lies beyond it.
