Life…in a nutshell

There I was innocently shelling pistachios and popping them into my greedy mouth. All of a sudden, I saw the greenest pistachio I have ever seen. Which inspired me to take a picture of it. Don’t ask why. Just bear with me. And as I took this picture, I kept recomposing it and when I was done, I had a little series that somehow came to represent a metaphor for life and relationships:

At some point, we crave isolation, so we hop out of the jar…

Then, we want company, but with a bit of a buffer zone…

Trying to be social

Then, we are willing to jump into the middle of a crowd, no holds barred…

Social Butterfly!

Pieces of our soul scatter sometimes, what with all the nuts out there *groan at bad pun*…

Scattered soul

Then they come back together to heal, and we go on as part of society, a little wiser, with some of the rough edges sand-papered away…


Or whatever πŸ˜€ DigiN’s being fanciful again…maybe they were too salty πŸ˜›

    Love the metaphor and the pics. So simply and beautifully illustrated it should be entitled “Life and Relationships for Dummies” (like me! :p)
