Patterns made in the sand by man with the wheels of his vehicle.

The ancient marks and patterns made by the Aboriginal people to tell their stories and map their journeys.

Then there are all the beautiful patterns made by nature. The ripples and reflections on water.

The ocean creating its impressions of the waves.

Then the collaboration of man and nature to delight us with the patterns in these artistic beds of flowers.

Finally as the sun sets over the ocean it paints a blood-red pattern across the waves.

I believe we create our own lives. And we create it by our thinking, feeling patterns in our belief system. I think we’re all born with this huge canvas in front of us and the paintbrushes and the paint, and we choose what to put on this canvas.

Paula’s special challenge this week is to find patterns in our world.

  1. What a beautiful and diverse collection of patterns. The ripples would have to be my favourite, but only by a neck. Still waiting to see if T has school on Tuesday.

  2. I like the first one best. Reminds me of the lifeguards patroling the beach when I was a kid……

    • You have called it Cindy. Those tracks were made by the life savers going down to the life saving stations.
