Happy Easter to my followers!

Happy Easter to my Christian followers! As we celebrate this joyful occasion, let us take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of Easter, which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter is a time of new beginnings, a time to let go of the old and embrace the new. To rejoice and be thankful for the blessings that we have been given, and to share our love and kindness with those around us.

Easter (also called Pascha, “Páscoa” in Porguese) has a personal meaning to me. On Easter Sunday twenty-nine years ago, I went into labor. My son was born three days later. Also on Easter, my late husband and I had our first date.

One common symbol of Easter is the egg, which stands for renewal, new life. In the Northern Hemisphere, Easter occurs in the spring, when all things come back to life, and that includes the tulip, which has also become a symbol of Easter.

Tulips have often been nicknamed “the bringers of spring”, since they are generally among the first flowers to show up. Additionally, they seem to come back from the dead, which is one reason they are connected to Easter.

The FEATURED PHOTOGRAPH (100mm, f/20, 4″, ISO 320) was taken as part of a project I have with friends. We photograph the same object then we chat behind the scenes about what we did or tried to do. Then we post our final images to social media and wait for feedback. It’s a fun project that involves a lot of learning. I have uploaded the image to my pixels website together with other still life.

And below, living proof that I have been working on my Winter Tulip project this year, now that these flowers are back.

        EEE: Etymology Elucidates Everything! Okay, I’m exaggerating, but it does elucidate many things. I’ve long advocated for more etymology in schools, where teachers offer essentially none now.

        There’s indeed a lot of pagan influence in Christianity. Christians in Europe took advantage of existing pagan traditions to reinforce Christmas and Easter.

        I agree. Taxonomists have more contact with etymology because species names sometimes elucidate something about the species. Often, we need o come up with names for them too, and want those names o be clever or revealing of something.

    I really like the photo of the tulips. They remind me of dancers, perhaps at a cotillion, bowing formally to one another before beginning the dance. The nest eggs also are nice. The texture of them is especially interesting. In this season of egg-dyeing, the color often obscures the texture of the shell. In fact, most of the time we never notice the texture. Well done.

    Happy Easter, and happy memories to you, too!
