Balance


Have you ever noticed how being in a new situation, a new environment, makes you sit up and pay attention? Makes you so much more aware of the daily magic? I've been so enamored by my surroundings that I spend my free time taking pictures again. I found this little lady in our backyard lake, flitting about with her purple, white and yellow cousins. Her posture made me think of you all.

So, I give her to you.

You, who spend your time giving time. Spend your energy feeding those who count on you for survival. Fill your days with nurturing the little ones, feeding the mouths, wiping the tears, polishing the souls you've been given ward of.

And still...

And still making time for your own dreams. Making time to move down your own path, one step at a time.

But, it's not about time, is it?

It's about balance.

This little red dragon salutes you.

I'm LMAO right now! When you wrote "I found this little lady in our backyard lake...", I didn't realize you meant the dragonfly in the photo, but thought you actually meant some little old lady! Ha!

Yay! that you're inspired to photography your new universe. You're inspirations are always an inspiration to me as well. So kudos to you for feeding our souls.
