Yesterday I found myself at the bottom of the steps in a beautiful environment, in reflecting on my post, I realized that not all steps are a welcome sight. That there are days when our thoughts and emotions are in a different place. Or should I say, in wandering through the hallways of the brain, we come across a scene perhaps like this one.
Pause for a moment. Look at the picture that the photographer of this shot captured. I’m not sure I know his/her intent, but to me it speaks volumes. Much like this one does. Again it was a toss up on which picture I would use today. Both spoke volumes to me and had me meditating on my thoughts for some time before I took to the keyboard.
Both of these pictures (for me) capture the essence of life at given moments during certain cycles we live through. When all around seems dreary,painful,lost, when our hearts are heavy, and our laughter barely a whisper, it is in such times that we have to call on our faith, know that the beauty is still there, that the sunshine is merely behind a cloud. The moment will pass, and the light of love and happiness with shine through once more. To love, to care is to allow yourself to feel vulnerable. Mother Nature is ALWAYS present. WE cannot know happiness without sadness, they go hand in hand, when you hold out your hand, you only see one side until you turn your hand over to see the palm. They are ONE.
Love and Blessings……thanks for sharing this moment with me. Oyashikiri
