Into Infinity

Boxes and tables made of inlaid mother of pearl are a traditional craft here. I remember my mother having one that had been brought back to the UK by an uncle stationed in Egypt before WWI. When I was preparing for the birth of my children, my birthing coach suggested having something to focus on while doing the breathing exercises, and I used an inlaid plate that we'd brought back from Egypt. If you look at the shining pattern long enough, you just sort of vanish.

That is sublime.

Beautiful photo.
I can imagine why it'd be a good birthing focus. I gather from your profile that was a while ago.
Funny how the details of birth get so permanently etched.

I am gazing at it and trying to vanish.
