A brown study.

The earth is the Lord’s , and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

Psalm 24 : 1
“A brown study.”
This is an old-fashioned idiom describing a mood in which someone is very involved in their own thoughts and not paying attention to anything else.
” I could see she was in a brown study.”

This vase with:
3 stems of dry arching leafy mint,
6 oil poppy seed heads,
a stem of oak leaves,
a bunch of ash seeds
and two dry cardoons
are last year, this year and next year.
Their leaves, and pods becoming earth.

A long time to be in a brown study.
Only ash holds the promise for next year.

Looking at these browns there are so many shades.

First look at the light browns think of earth, dirt, soil. They say these make you think of honesty, friendliness, healthy warmth and nature.

If a texture looks inviting we take this as a naptic invitation. An appeal to our sense of touch to have a positive tactile experience.

Brown stems, brown stones and sand.
“Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance, and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun.”
Kent Nerburn ( American Author)

Each moment has different flavour, different beauty and different texture.
