I guess that 6.12 I had this morning was just a tease. It doesnt look like i'm getting back up there with this one. I might be lucky to stay in the 5's.

Going down and still only one *#@& comment. How hard is it to type a few words?

Had to add a bio line due to the frustration...

Goals:
To score above a 5 in a challenge.
To, and I know it is asking alot, receive comments from the voters.
To learn from the challenges, provided the above is achieved, and get better at taking pictures.

Acts at random,
In ignorance of
The constant, bode ill.
Knowing the constant
Gives perspective;
This perspective is impartial.
Impartiality is the highest nobility;
The highest nobility is divine,
And the divine is the Way.
This Way is everlasting,
Not endangered by physical death.

I keep wavering between this and a 6.0. I miss my 6.6 :(

Maybe the rest of the week will see the return of an all-time high score!

Ok, I browsed the Zan images again... and I am sorry, I just can not vote for this challenge. It would be unfair. Some photos are awesome, but I wouldn't be able tell if they fit to challenge (subject wise)...

Do you have any suggestions? should I stay out of this one, and not vote... I mean no one would lose a ribbon or something because of me right?

Don't worry you are thinking too much.

Zen is about being and allowing what is, to be.

I can't tell you what you should do. I just think you are worrying too much about a challenge that is supposed to quiet the mind ... look at the images and let yourself be one with them and then maybe click a number or not.

Just do what I do.

If they fit the challenge to you, then they fit. Don't worry what other people think, zen is rather internal to my way of thinking and I'm sure my interpretation is likely not jiving with many of the entrants. I am trying to explain why I've voted the way I have on each of mine whether I feel a sense of zen from the image or not so maybe you can do that.

If you feel you need to vote high because you think the shot is amazing then go for it. If you need to do the opposite, go ahead. Its clear you're thinking about your vote and what the challenge means to you (confusing as it is!) so your vote will at the very least be honest. :)

I posted this quote before but I feel it applies here:

The foolish reject what they see,
Not what they think;
The wise reject what they think,
Not what they see.
Observe things as they are
And donít pay attention to other people.

I started off in the upper fives, so the drop is a little dissapointing. But I did just get a wonderful comment. :)

Went to bed with 5 comments and score of 5.9x. Woke up to 5 comments and score of 5.9x with a realization that nothing changes in just 8 hours....and now I have to go to same boring work. sigh.

Ordinary people have been revolving in circles since time immemorial, being born and dying. Because of clinging fixedly to self-images, false ideas, and misperceptions, the habits of illusion eventually become second nature to them. Even if they suddenly awaken in this life and realize that their essential nature is fundamentally empty and silent, no different from the Buddhas, nevertheless past habits are difficult to remove all at once.
