Hit Rock Bottom


It is yet to be the very bottom when you hit rock bottom. Dig a hole and go inside, you will find yourself way below the bottom.

Enjoy the aerial view; the world is so different and beautiful. Mushrooms told me.


Mushrooms spent most of their lifetime under the “bottom-line”; bored by the banging footsteps of hikers, irritated by their foul-smelling sweat, and sometimes, harassed by urine that monkeys urinate on themselves to attract a mate.

They would pop up one day, to see them in their very short life, dancing and embracing light, and to inspire us in different forms.

Bom tarde, penso ter comentado esta sua pagina, de qualquer modo, nada me custa reconhecer novamente que as fotos são lindas e com toda a razão o diz que os cogumelos fazem parte da nossa vida.

Hmm.... I have heard 'there's nowhere to go but up' when you seem to hit rock bottom. But you are saying the opposite. I think. I guess the thing is to try not to get into that hole in the first place, unless you have the resilience of a mushroom.

Wonderful post and great mushroom shots ~ thinking that mushrooms could teach us a great deal about living the Tao way ~

Happy Weekend to you,

Hello Rainfield, wonderful mushroom images. I can picture them popping up and dancing in the light. Have a happy weekend!

Wow...a great set of images, and the 'dancing and embracing light'...like we humans should follow their actions in our own lives...I love that.

Cute mushrooms! They spend most of their lives hiding in the ground.

The aerial view is often much nicer than rock bottom (or even lower).

I try to imagine the gigantic system of mushroom hyphae, the mycelium, underground that finally bursts forth in the celestial delicate mushrooms like little parasols. The mycelium must be awesome in power, seeking out nutrients in the soil, tunneling, tunneling. So perhaps under rock bottom there can be mysterious growth that finally bursts forth into something beautiful. The last mushroom reminds me of a Chinese rice paddy hat.

Beautiful photos, and such thoughtful narrative. Even below bottom can be a lovely place!

Icy BC said...

They are beautiful and fancy looking mushroom!

Do you know that there is really no bottom? You think it is, but once you're in it, it can get deeper..
