{Echo} Week 7 : Whisper

"whisper"
As I share my interpretation of the echo prompt given to us by Chrysti and Susan for Week 7,
I am reminded of the glory of God revealed to us in the soft whispering flutter of a butterflies wings.
My shot was taken in south Texas during Thanksgiving weekend.
My prompt partner Lani, shares with us the inukshuk, which just so happens to be the emblem for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Lani says this~

"The inukshuk image was from our course. There's an ancient wall built with rocks from when white folks just arrived in the area. It's part of our morning walk. Someone had taken loose rocks and built inukshuk or inuksuit (plural) which means "in the likeness of a human" in the Inuit language. They are monuments made of stones that are used to say "Someone was here" or "You are on the right path." I love these little figures and wonder about all the various peoples that have lived on this land.
The walls and rocks
whisper to me "someone was here" and "you are on the right path."

It's amazing how something so quiet, small and delicate can put us into such a spacious place! Beautiful shot Diane!

How lovely Diane,

I find it rather wonderful that the quiet little whisper caused by a butterfly's wings is the root of the Chaos Theory!!! Something so small and seemingly unimpressive is the basis of an explanation & interpretation that guides the laws of physics!
