I wrote a piece on patterns six months ago, and a number of readers responded with notes and some terrific images. Howard Meister sent me this one of eggs, which I pass along to you as we enter Easter Weekend. There will be lots of Easter egg hunts; untold eggs painted; yellow sugar chickens and chocolate rabbits consumed. What these things have to do with Christianity escapes me, but I enjoy peeking through to the pagan world.
Scavenging for patterns and hunting for Easter Eggs have some things in common. Both keep us looking for things in unlikely places and feeling optimistic about what the future might hold. Adults can play like kids, and kids can interact with their environment like purposeful adults. Both activities are somewhat absurd and yet make all the sense in the world. They challenge and stimulate the eyes while drawing in our other senses. They are pure and playful endeavors that need not be run through our rational minds or put into words. Neither requires a religious overlay to be enjoyed.
Here is a group of images I have picked up over the last six months. I always welcome seeing what other hunters bring in.
